Fairfield University Professor Dr. Yohuru Williams explores the history of the Black Power Movement in Southern Connecticut with a particular emphasis on Fairfield County and the intriguing band of activists and supporters who helped to shape the struggle for Black equality in this region. From the Black Panther Party, and the Puerto Rican Young Lords Party, to the surprising band of white allies who aided their causes, Professor Williams engages the fascinating history of this exciting period in American and Connecticut History.

The lecture will be preceded by Connecticut filmmaker Karyl Evans’ short documentary
