Poster presentations from Dr. Jeffrey Partridge’s Hartford Heritage Capstone class capped a forum on “Immigration and its Impact on Hartford” at Centinel Hill Hall, April 24th.

Students researched and presented on the city’s immigrant history with projects on former Mayor Ann Uccello, Educator Annie Fisher, Gwendolyn Reed and the “Aunt Jemima” brand, the Heublein Company, Community Leader Maria Sanchez, Founder Francis Goodwin, Architect George Keller and The Fuller Brush Company.

Prior to the presentations a panel led by President Wilfredo Nieves discussed the city’s immigration history and its impact. Participants included Dr. Andrew Walsh, associate director of Trinity College’s Leonard Greenberg Center for the Study of Religion in Public Life; Dr. Marcia Drew Hohn, Director, Public Education Institute; Homa Naficy, Harford Public Library’s adult learning officer; and Rocio Zavala Rojas, Trinity College student and Capital graduate.

The forum was sponsored by the Center for Teaching, the ESL program and the Humanities Department
