African American Heroines, at Simsbury Public Library
The Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame will present the story of our state’s African American heroines, from 6 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 27, at Simsbury Public Library.

African Americans have played a major role in the development of our state, our nation and our world. African American women from Connecticut are no exception!
Join us for an interactive multimedia program by the Connecticut Women's Hall of Fame and learn about some of Connecticut's most remarkable African American heroines.
From women's rights advocate Maria Miller Stewart and legendary contralto and Civil Rights catalyst Marian Anderson, to pioneering journalist Adrianne Baughns-Wallace, you'll be inspired as we explore the important contributions of African American women in Connecticut.
