History and Walking
Updated: Nov 13, 2019
I was asked to create a walking tour focused on the west side of Providence by the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities to post on a web app they co-sponsor with Brown University's Center for Public Humanities and the Rhode Island Historical Society. As I did research into the neighborhood (where I lived at the time), the themes of activism and immigration came up again and again, and so became the focus of the tour. Please check out the Rhode Tour app and the tour here. URI PhD candidate Catherine Winters also made some great short videos to promote the tour focused on a couple of the sites. I was thrilled to be a part of them. Check out the vids below.
