Justice & Faith: Hartford's First Black Church 1819-2019

For two hundred years, African Americans — both enslaved and free — have maintained a vital community of worship in Hartford. The Talcott Street Church also provided a safe haven to speak out and organize around American slavery, the primary moral issue of the day.

As the church grew, it became the home of women and men who were powerful examples of faith-based justice, including James Mars, Rebecca Primus, Rev. James Pennington, and Ann Plato. Today, Faith Congregational Church continues this proud and unbroken history.

Join historian, Steve Thornton, founder of the Shoeleather History Project, as he introduces some of these fascinating figures and uncovers previously unknown stories that are relevant to our times.

This event is free to attend and registration is not required, but is encouraged, for this Conversations at Noon program. Register for the program HERE.
