Regina Mason.

This hour: "the search for William Grimes."

We talk to author and film producer Regina Mason about her quest to find her great-great-great-grandfather -- a New Haven resident and runaway slave. 

Plus: the history of the Great Migration.

How did this decades-long phenomenon come to reshape Connecticut's communities? We find out and we also hear from you.

Event info:

Dr. Stacy Close will give a lecture on the impact of the Great Migration in the North and South on Sunday, February 11, 2018 at the Norwalk Historical Society Museum. For more info, click here
