Connecticut is one of the most segregated states in the country - and this segregation was generated by a long history of public and private actions. The tragic legacy of these actions is our inheritance as a society. It has shaped where we live, who can be our neighbors, and the demographics of our towns and regions. Please join Open Communities Alliance for this two-part series hosted by the Fairfield Museum and History Center and Westport Museum for History and Culture in partnership with First Church Congregational of Fairfield the Saugatuck Congregational Church of Westport, the Fairfield Affordable Housing Committee, and TEAM Westport.
