International Slave Trade Walking Tour

Friday, August 25, 2:30-4:30 pm

Tour departs from the corner of Brown and Power Streets near the John Brown House.

Sponsored by the Center for Reconciliation (CFR), the popular International Slave Trade Walking Tour offers an exclusive “behind the scenes” look inside four local historic sites, discussing Rhode Island’s complicity and resistance to the international slave trade from a variety of viewpoints. Everyone from the state’s wealthiest early citizens to its most recent antebellum immigrants helped the Ocean State become the US’s largest contributor to the slave trade. Tour stops include the John Brown House, John Carter Brown Library, University Hall, Stephen Hopkins House, Cathedral of St. John cemetery, and the Cathedral itself. $20 per person. Limited spots are available, and registration is required. Registration: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/walking-tour-college-hill-the-international-slave-trade-august-tickets-36278893146
