Last summer I sat down with colleagues at ConnecticutHistory.org to brainstorm ways of partnering together to document African-American and civil rights history in the Hartford region. In this video, students from my Cities, Suburbs, and Schools seminar discuss what they learned about the process of writing for broader audiences through this open-access web publication. So far, essays published by my Trinity students include:

Victoria Smith-Ellison, “Hartford’s Great Migration Through Charles S. Johnson’s Eyes,” ConnecticutHistory.org, February 2013.

Mary Daly, “Race Restrictive Covenants in Property Deeds,” ConnecticutHistory.org, January 2013.

Nicole Sagullo, “How Real Estate Practices Influenced the Hartford Region’s Demographic Makeup,” ConnecticutHistory.org, February 2013.

Amanda Gurren, “Connecticut Takes the Wheel on Education Reform: Project Concern,” ConnecticutHistory.org, April 2013.
