South Side: Where Providence Begins
February 15 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 8:30am on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, repeating until April 12, 2019
“South Side: Where Providence Begins” is a homage to a region, whom many consider, the cultural and ethnic melting pot of Rhode Island through the social and historical lens of the African American community. From the post-WWII era; through the Civil Rights, education, and the Fair Housing Movement of the 60s, 70s & 80s; to the present, this exhibit explores the diaspora, adversity, growth, and achievement of African Americans – and people of color – who inhabit Wards 9, 10, & 11 of Providence.
