Black History Matters: Compelling Lecture Series E...

Presented by Providence Community Library and Rhode Island Council for the Humanities and Rhode Island Black Heritage Society at Unknown

Power, Privilege & Social Justice: History of African American Civil Rights in Providence, RI  is a three-part series from the Rhode Island Black Heritage Society, in partnership with Providence Community Library, which explores the history and struggle for African Americans to achieve Civil Rights in Providence over a 300-year period. Keith Stokes, Advisor to the RI Black Heritage Society, will present the talks. The series begins with the arrival of enslaved Africans and continues through history to the unfinished business of today. The presentations will examine how contemporary social justice activities are an outgrowth of civil rights work done in the past and will also include rarely seen historic images. The FREE talks take place on successive Wednesdays, September 23, 30 and October 7 and will be prefaced by a short story, told by Valerie Tutson, of RI Black Storytellers. Tickets are FREE and available on Eventbrite.
