National Endowment For The Humanities Sheds Light On 'From Harlem To Hip-Hop' Institute

The Windsor Human Relations Committee closed out Black History Month with a talk by Dr. Laura Nash, a professor of music at Fairfield University.

The talk was held at the town hall on Feb. 25.

Nash leads a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Institute that chronicles the history from the Harlem Renaissance to Hip Hop. Every summer, 25 teachers from around the nation participate in the NEH institute.
