Friends of the Prudence Crandall Museum


Prudence Crandall is Connecticut’s Official State Heroine. Her house, a National Historic Landmark, is administered by the State of Connecticut, Dept. of Economic and Community Development, as the Prudence Crandall Museum. Prudence Crandall’s principled stand to gain for African Americans the right to equal educational opportunities--even at the risk of her life and at the cost of the destruction of her teaching career--is inspiring. The museum undertakes to bring this story to life, focusing on public programming, educational outreach - especially within the local schools systems - among young adults, and within the African American community. The purpose of Friends of the Prudence Crandall Museum is to assist in the preservation and interpretation of the Museum, to encourage and promote visitation, and to enhance the public’s appreciation of this truly unique landmark.
