Watch for: Two Connecticuts: Conversations about Race and Place

 The Two Connecticuts: Conversations about Race and Place is a four-part series presented by University of Hartford’s Presidents' College and the Office of Diversity and Community Engagement, The Third Age Initiative™ a program of Leadership Greater Hartford, and The Connecticut Mirror.

The four panels are presented online, on Wednesday evenings Sept. 22, Oct. 20, Nov. 10, Dec. 8. The events are free, but registration is required.  Register at this link:

For more information on content and panelists, go to: 

"The Two Connecticuts: Conversations about Race and Place."

This series will examine how segregation impacts economic opportunity, healthcare, education, safety and the personal dignity of people of color, and how it also disadvantages the state as a whole. 

Each session will address a different topic and will highlight initiatives enacted in other states or proposed in Connecticut.

The sessions will take place from September to December.  The first session, on September 22, will be virtual.  We are hoping the October, November, and December sessions can be in-person in addition to being virtual.  All sessions are free.

Admission is free but registration is required. Panel I held virtually only; Panels II–IV held in person and virtually.
