This podcast focuses on the Witness Stones project occurring in Old Lyme, Connecticut. It’s an opportunity to think about what it means to take a look at the history of enslaved people in a community that is mainly white. We’ll take a look at the successes and the challenges.

This is the third in a series of podcasts that highlight the work of organizations forwarding equity in Southeastern Connecticut (full transcript below). The First Congregational Church of Old Lyme received a Partnership Grant from the Health Improvement Collaborative of Southeastern CT (HIC) as part of the Collaboratives’ work funded by the Cross Sector Innovation Initiative Grant (CSII). This grant initiative is lead by the Center for Sharing Public Health Services (CSPHS) and Public Health National Center for Innovations (PHNCI), with funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF)
