Hartford’s Black Heroes Trail

Hartford Black's Heroes Trail

Hartford’s Black Heroes Trail

“Honoring Hartford’s Black History, for generations to come.”

The inaugural Hartford’s Black Heroes trail will honor Hartford heroes who have made History at the local and national level. The inaugural trail will feature 19 installations along Main Street in Hartford, each highlighting a different impactful hero with a brief description of their accomplishments. The project will tie into the Hartford History Center’s “Changemakers” program and is intended to continue to add new honorees yearly.

The idea was originally brought to Councilwoman Tiana Hercules from local advocate Bridgitte Prince, and was developed by her office with significant help from the Hartford History Center at Hartford Public Library, Hartford’s Department of Public Works & Office of Equity & Opportunity, as well as dozens of neighborhood associations. The project also received sponsorship from Councilwoman Shirley Surgeon and Council Majority Leader TJ Clarke.
