The Power of Community
Join CHS for a panel discussion with distinguished Black leaders and artists as they share their experiences with the community as a source of power and joy, and how culture can be shared to create a more just world as experienced in Connecticut.
The panelists have carved out space in Hartford and beyond for members of their communities to see themselves reflected beyond a single narrative. Through the creation of public venues and conversations, these guest speakers enable residents and artists to define themselves and their individual Black experiences. This joy is reflected in wedding photos, renaming green space, organizing Juneteenth celebrations, hosting town halls, and art galleries. It becomes a love letter to Black residents and allows neighbors to listen and learn.
