April 15, 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM, Removing the Gates: How We Are All Responsible for Inclusion. How can historians and historical societies fulfill their social responsibility to tell more inclusive and accessible stories? And how can people join this conversation to demand and support more equitable programming? Join University of Connecticut historian, Dr. Fiona Vernal, as she explores engaged, public, oral, and community histories that reveal things like - why Georgia featured so prominently in the Great Migration of African Americans to Connecticut; how West Indians became the largest foreign-born population in the state; and what happens when we tell the story of shade tobacco as an intersection of labor, identity, mobility, and migration? You won’t want to miss it!
