February 23 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
From women’s rights advocate Marie Miller Stewart, to Civil Rights catalyst (and legendary contralto singer) Marian Anderson, to our current State Treasurer Denise L. Nappier, African American women have contribute to our state’s history since its founding. Yet these major players in the development of Connecticut are continually downplayed or ignored. Remember the people who helped make our state great this Black History Month and join us for a multimedia presentation by the Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame, a branch of the acclaimed nonprofit Connecticut Forum, to learn about some of Connecticut’s most remarkable African American heroines.
The Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame is an educational outreach organization whose mission is to honor publicly the achievement of Connecticut women, preserve their stories, educate the public and inspire the continued achievements of women and girls.
Kathryn Gloor, Executive Director of the Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame, will deliver the presentation. Kathryn has spent more than 15 years raising awareness and support for the causes she loves, including education, women’s rights, and cultural organizations.
