The Two Connecticuts: Conversations about Race and Place

A four-part series presented by University of Hartford’s Presidents’ College and the Office of Diversity and Community Engagement, The Third Age Initiative™ a program of Leadership Greater Hartford, and The Connecticut Mirror.

SERIES OVERVIEW

George Orwell reminded us that it is a constant struggle to see what is right in front of our noses. In Connecticut that is racial and economic segregation. This special series will examine how segregation hurts people of color—depriving them of personal dignity, economic opportunity, and access to healthcare and safety—yet also disadvantages the state as a whole.

Over four sessions, panels of informed experts will examine the racism that surrounds us, in housing, schools, and the structure of our government. Join us to learn more about the disparities that exist in our state, and what you can do about them. We will talk about initiatives enacted in other states and proposed here in Connecticut, so that all participants have the opportunity to join the effort to reduce these disparities where they live.
