The Witness Stones Project, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to restore the history and honor the humanity of the enslaved individuals who helped build our communities, today announced a new affiliation with James Hillhouse High School in New Haven, Connecticut.
This new collaboration is funding by a generous gift from the William Caspar Graustein Memorial Fund in Hamden, Connecticut. The Director’s Discretionary Grant from Executive Director R. David Addams will allow Hillhouse students to discover and chronicle the local history of slavery in New Haven.
James Hillhouse High School’s mission to graduate students prepared for success in a world of increasing diversity, technological change and global challenges.
The New Haven Museum stimulates inquiry, increases understanding and fosters appreciation of greater New Haven’s history and heritage.
The William Caspar Graustein Memorial Fund’s mission is to achieve equity in education by working with those affected and inspiring all to end racism and poverty.
