HARTFORD, CT -- In 1994 the Urban League of Greater Hartford produced the book “The State of Black Hartford” which, for the first time, provided comprehensive information on the history of African and Caribbean-Americans in Hartford. The Urban League will provide an update to this work with the publication of “The 2016 State of Black Hartford,” thanks to a $36,000 grant from the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving.
It was the honor of CCP to have Ambassador James Joseph deliver the keynote address at CCP’s Philanthropy Luncheon and Conference on May 13th. The 250 philanthropists and partners present were deeply moved by the Ambassador’s extraordinarily rich and poignant message of justice and community. We are honored to share his words with you and hope you will save them and return to read them again over time. They may serve as a measure of your work in your community and the larger world.
