Important Update

NBC CT Launches ‘Connecticut In Color,' NBC

In this segment of Connecticut in Color we tackle implicit bias and racial injustice through the lens of an artist who has painted the portraits of victims of racially motivated violence. Rudy Shepherd’s Somebody’s Child paints the portraits of victims in an effort to celebrate their humanity and mourn the loss of life. The death of George Floyd has prompted dialogue nationwide, we discuss locally the necessity of empathy, healing and growth coming off this national call for justice.
