Step into our collections spaces to take an exclusive look at items representing a spectrum of the Black experience in Connecticut. You’ll learn about Augustus Washington, who abandoned a successful Hartford photography business to build a new nation in Africa. Then, browse through the photo album of a Hollywood actress who became a champion of labor rights for black entertainers. Marvel at the gorgeous costumes created by CT’s West Indian community for their annual MAS celebration, and see artifacts documenting the Civil Rights movement in our state.
