The City partnered with the Rhode Island Black Heritage Society, Rhode Island Historical Society, 1696 Heritage Group, and the Providence Preservation Society to work with the AAAG Truth-Telling Subgroup, comprised of nearly 20 community members from the larger African American Ambassador Group, to collect and analyze historical collections, documents, and artifacts that define the African heritage and Indigenous people’s history within Providence and Rhode Island. The Center for Reconciliation is proud to participate in the work of the AAAG.
