Black History Month

February 9, 2024

During Black History Month I am honoring my friend and colleague Q Williams. Q was the first Black person to be elected to represent Middletown's 100th house district in the Connecticut General Assembly. He was a trailblazer in so many ways, and a fierce advocate for education and a friend to everyone he met. He left his mark on Connecticut as Chair of the Housing Committee and Labor Committee, Co-founder of the educational nonprofit Equity CT, an adjunct professor at University of Hartford, a proud member of the CT Black and Puerto Rican Caucus, a proud member of Beta Sigma Lambda, the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. Beta Sigma Lambda Chapter, Hartford, CT.
