Black Heritage In Providence

While always acknowledging Providence's legacy of participation in the slave trade, we also want to celebrate the rich history of the Black community from the early days of the Revolution to the present day. From the Rhode Island Black Heritage Society's exhibit on Black entrepreneurs to Stages of Freedom's Museum of African American History, stories of Black excellence and accomplishment are plentiful. Be sure to stop for lunch or dinner at one of Providence's many Black-owned restaurants while you visit the sites on the Early Black History Walking Tour. With a variety of cuisines from Southern soul food to traditional African meals, you're sure to find something you like!
