We’d like to take thank everyone who has made this project possible. First and foremost, we want to thank Adrienne, Christine, and Mark for welcoming us into this story and giving us the opportunity to become a part of this incredible work.
We’d also like to give a special thanks to The Connecticut State Library and Wendy Taylor of the Kent Memorial Library for guiding us in our research. We don’t know what we would’ve done without you!
We’d also like to thank the Trinity College Public Humanities Collaborative. This is a summer research program run by the Center for Hartford Engagement and Research, and the reason we were able to connect with this project in the first place. We are forever grateful for the opportunities this program has afforded us and the amazing people we’ve connected with.
And of course, a tremendous thank you to the family members who shared some of their stories: Evelyn Browne, Vadinho Shaw, Vernita Weller, and Robert Henderson. We are so grateful to have connected with you. Your time, stories, and involvement have been invaluable!
