Building an Equitable Future: Connecticut College Just Futures

A collaboration between Connecticut College and the New London community is bringing the past and present together, in hopes of a more just future for residents of color.

The Connecticut College initiative is part of “Crafting Democratic Futures: Situating Colleges and Universities in Community-based Reparations Solutions,” a three-year collaborative project supported by a $5 million grant to the University of Michigan from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The goal of the project is to bridge the gap between colleges and communities and explore reparations for African American and Indigenous communities.
