Black History Exhibit 1 (Milford Seven)

Faces of Milford

The Faces of Milford exhibit is our new and improved black history exhibit, featuring the stories and photos of black Milfordians throughout Milford’s history. This exhibit tells an untold story, highlighting the struggles and successes of these Milfordians throughout their lives, ranging from the Civil War to the decision of Brown vs the Board of Education, and into modern day.

In this exhibit you can learn about the Milford Eleven, the first group of black high school students who attempted to integrate Milford High School in 1954, as well as the Milford Seven, who were the first to successfully integrate Milford High School and graduate in 1965, and so many more people who made Milford’s community great.
