“Hopes and Expectations: The Origins of the Black Middle Class in Hartford,” with Barbara Beeching, Ph.D
Dr. Beeching came late to the study of history. When she retired from public relations work in the Connecticut tourism office, she enrolled at Trinity College and earned a Master’s Degree in American Studies. She then went on to study American History at UConn, earning her Ph.D. in 2010. Her forthcoming book grew out of her dissertation. An Indiana native, she now lives at Seabury and is happy to be a resident of Bloomfield.
