During the tumultuous period of the 1960s, people of various races, religions, ages, genders, and classes contributed to an integrated and hugely influential civil rights movement – both in Connecticut and around the entire nation of the United States of America. This incredible exhibition shares the impactful stories, artifacts, and images of Connecticut freedom workers who supported the movement at home or making the long journey south to participate in events and activities such as sit-ins, protests, and marches, including the iconic 1963 March on Washington and the 1965 Selma to Montgomery March.
