An annual celebration of Black History took place at UCONN Stamford Tuesday afternoon, bringing people of all ages to the school's concourse. State and local officials were among Tuesday's speakers, most notably keynote speaker Connecticut Supreme Court Justice Richard Robinson, who shared a special moment with Stamford's Mayor at the podium. 

Robinson recounted personal life experiences and important events in history that made America what it is today. He specifically spoke about a young black teen killed in 1955 Mississippi because of his race. 

A fitting ending to his speech, the Supreme Court Justice closed out by naming important court cases in history that have made an impact on civil rights and racial equality, citing the law as a powerful tool of change.
