The History of Hartford Protest: A Convo with Steve Thornton
Join Connecticut’s Old State House on Facebook Live on July 16th at 7pm for a conversation with local historian Steve Thornton. Steve lived in Hartford for more than forty-five years, where he was involved in union, housing, and anti-racist organizing. Now he chronicles the stories of the city’s working people, both past and present.
Steve will discuss the history of Hartford protest movements including suffrage, peace, and environmental campaigns as well as the struggles of immigrant communities to establish themselves in sometimes hostile surroundings.
