September is Connecticut Freedom Trail Month! The Connecticut Freedom Trail is designed to recognize the importance of sites throughout the State that are associated with the heritage and movement towards freedom of African Americans. The mission of the Windsor Freedom Trail is to 1) raise awareness of the Windsor Freedom Trail and share the rich history of the Freedom Trail sites; and 2) provide Windsor residents and the greater community with educational programs and events to celebrate African American achievement, history, and heritage. Due to COVID 19, the annual Windsor Freedom Trail Run and Walking Tour will be suspended this year, however we will still be celebrating Freedom Trail Month in Windsor with the following September, 2020 Windsor Freedom Trail activities:

Windsor Freedom Trail Documentary to Air on WIN-TV: Starting September 16th through Mid October: Relax in the comforts of your home while watching the Windsor Freedom Trail Documentary.
