The history of slavery and race in Connecticut is not what you may think. As the New England state with the largest slave population at the time of the American Revolution, Connecticut reveals a troubled connection to the “peculiar institution” and the problems of race that were woven within. Join CCSU Professor of History Dr. Matthew Warshauer for an intriguing and at times disconcerting look at how Connecticut residents viewed slavery and race before, during, and after the Civil War.
