The Two Connecticuts: Conversations about Race and Place
Session 1 — Session 2 — Session 3 — Session 4
A four-part series presented by University of Hartford, Leadership Greater Hartford, and The Connecticut Mirror
This session defines and examines racism–how it alienates, isolates, and otherwise keeps people of color from reaching their potential and being welcomed into the other Connecticut. It also will take a close look at how racism negatively affects our economy.
- William Tong, Attorney General of the State of Connecticut
- Jay Williams, President of the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving
- Dana Peterson, Executive Vice President and Chief Economist at The Conference Board
The panel will be moderated by Lucy Nalpathanchil, executive producer and host of CT Public’s “Where We Live.”
