We Walked into History on the Trail in New Haven

We had a great turnout today (Tuesday 6/19/2012) on the trail in Newhallville, New Haven for a tour sponsored by the Festival of Arts & Ideas.  An extraordinary group of partners: The Amistad and CT Freedom Trail Committee, the Greater New Haven Labor History Association, and New Haven's Peace Commission came together to take a walk into the history and political ecology of the trail in this area. We learned about the settlement of this historic African-American neighborhood and the influence of the Winchester Arms Factory, on the trail, on social and labor relations, and environmental affairs.
