Biographical / Historical
During the 1990s and early 2000s, the project continued to gain momentum with interviews of those originally involved in the movement, including former city leaders and those who arranged for each group to have a platform to express themselves in the original films. Trinity College professors sought to acquire material related to Hartford (Conn.) during the past decades, leading to a multitude of visual, audio, and audio-visual material as well as paper-based reports, studies, and papers on the city and various facets such as housing, neighborhoods, and political activities.
