In this study I explore what takes place inside, outside, and between the gates surrounding Trinity College; the black, the white, and most importantly the gray areas where questions may have been raised, but have failed to be answered. The College and the Community are irrevocably intwined with one another, yet there are forces that keep them apart, and have kept the two from truly interacting for decades. Like the links in a fence, many aspects come together to create an urban climate, and the fence, be it physical or imaginary, that surround Trinity College play an integral role in manifesting the overwhelming tension and social divisions that exist between the neighborhood communities and the College community in Hartford.
