Behind the Scenes Tour:

Black History at the CHS

1 Elizabeth Street, Hartford, CT - 1 Elizabeth Street, Hartford, CT, USA

Celebrate Juneteenth with an exclusive look at items from our collection representing a spectrum of the Black experience in CT. You’ll learn about a Harlem Renaissance writer, Ann Petry, who carefully preserved artifacts chronicling the black community of Saybrook. Examine daguerreotypes by Augustus Washington, who abandoned a successful Hartford photography business to build a new nation in Africa. Browse through the photo album of a Hollywood actress who became a champion of labor rights for black entertainers. Marvel at the gorgeous costumes created by CT’s West Indian community for their annual MAS celebration, and see artifacts documenting the Civil Rights movement in our state.

$10 for CHS members, $15 for non-members. Ticket includes admission to the museum's galleries.
