A Joint Venture of the State Historian and Connecticut Explored - with support from the Sue B. Hart Foundation.

Mar 13, 2016
6. IRISH EYES, AND VOTING AND PROTESTING

        Just in time for St. Paddy's Day, Jamie Eves of the Windham Textile and History Museum in Willimantic talks to State Historian Walt Woodward about their new exhibit "Irish Eyes: The Irish Experience in a Connecticut Mill Town.

        Then, in "What's It All About?", the Connecticut Explored editorial team discusses the articles in the Spring 2016 issue focused on civic engagement including Mary Donohue on religious equality for Jews and Dave Corrigan on the income tax protest of 1991. And publisher Elizabeth Normen interviews Melanie Anderson Bourbeau, curator of Hill-Stead Museum in Farmington, about the suffrage journey of Hill-Stead's architect and last resident Theodate Pope Riddle. 

        It's history worth listening to, and talking about – on Episode 6 of Grating the Nutmeg.
