At the last quarter of the 2Oth century Americans are faced with affirmative action, bused integration, defacto segration, unequal educational opportunities, and a general inability of black Americans to achieve their share of the American Dream. Racial inequality is not unique to our time but is part of a continuing struggle which began when blacks were first brought to this country. Connecticut has not been immune to this, and the struggle for equality of blacks in the 18th and 19th centuries reveals a great deal about our state and our country.
