Freedom Trail Events for September 2020

Freedom Trail Events for September 2020
September is Connecticut Freedom Trail Month! The Connecticut Freedom Trail is designed to recognize the importance of sites throughout the State that are associated with the heritage and movement towards freedom of African Americans. The mission of the Windsor Freedom Trail is to 1) raise awareness of the Windsor Freedom Trail and share the rich history of the Freedom Trail sites; and 2) provide Windsor residents and the greater community with educational programs and events to celebrate African American achievement, history, and heritage. Due to COVID 19, the annual Windsor Freedom Trail Run and Walking Tour will be suspended this year, however we will still be celebrating Freedom Trail Month in Windsor with the following September, 2020 Windsor Freedom Trail activities:

Windsor Freedom Trail Documentary to Air on WIN-TV: Starting September 16th through Mid October: Relax in the comforts of your home while watching the Windsor Freedom Trail Documentary. Members of the community will talk about their experiences as freedom trail event participants and will share what it meant to learn about the rich African American history in Windsor by visiting the various sites along the Windsor Freedom Trail. The Windsor sites will also be highlighted in the Documentary. They are as follows: the Riverside cemetery on East Street in Windsor where a number of African American soldiers from the Connecticut 29th and 31st colored regiments and other civil war units are buried, the Nancy Toney grave site, the Joseph Rainey House, the William Best House, and the historic Archer Memorial A.M.E. Zion Church and Cemetery.

The documentary will air on WIN-TV (Comcast Channel 5, Frontier channel 6102) through the rest of September and into mid October for public viewing starting on Wednesday. September 16th. The viewing schedule will be as follows: Mondays @ 8:00am, Wednesdays @ 4:00pm, Thursdays @ 8:00pm, and Saturdays @ 9:00pm. WIN-TV will also air this documentary at other random times throughout this time period.

Windsor Freedom Trail Food Drive: September 26th 9:00am-12noon - In keeping with a Windsor Freedom Trail tradition, the Freedom Trail Committee will still be collecting donations of non-perishable food items to be donated to the Windsor Food Bank. The collection will take place on Saturday, September 26th in the Archer Memorial A.M.E. Zion Church parking lot (320 Hayden Station Road, Windsor, CT) from 9:00am – 12:00noon.
