What a great profile of an extraordinary woman with such rich stories to tell about a Suffield others would deny. Indeed, we all need to listen. As a new resident in town, it is a privilege to hear Betty’s story and to know she lives just down the road.
For most of her life, Betty Arnold has lived in Suffield. Hers is one of four Black families who live on Kent Avenue. In years past, Kent Avenue and Ellison Street were where many Blacks lived, all within a half mile or so.
