Would you like to learn more about Windsor’s Black history, or share some of your own? Join friends at Windsor Historical Society for two lively and informal lunch conversations this summer! Bring your lunch and meet in person at the Historical Society from 12 to 1:30 PM for fun and engaging discussions of “Reconstructing the Past – How we know about Windsor’s early Black residents” (July 20) and “Work and play – growing up Black in Windsor” (August 10).

Researcher Marcia Hinckley and historical society staff Michelle Tom and Sulema DePeyster will share fascinating historical resources and guide conversation, with plenty of opportunities for sharing and discussion. Bring stories or photos of your own to share, and join the conversation!

July 20. Reconstructing the past – how we know about Windsor’s earliest Black residents. Explore how we know about the lives of Windsor’s Black residents, both enslaved and free, over the past 300+ years, and how their lives and stories connect to Windsor today.

August 10. Work and play – growing up Black in Windsor. What was it like growing up Black in majority-white Windsor? How has life in the town changed over the years? Hear fascinating stories and share some of your own.

Bring your own lunch. Drinks and snacks provided. No advanced registration required. For more information: info@windsorhistoricalsociety.org or 860-688-3813. Free.
