Illuminating the Legacy of Slavery in Rhode Island

August 26, 2021 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

August 23rd is International Day for the Remembrance of the Slave Trade and its Abolition. On this date, TWPEF will project imagery and stage dramatic readings about the history and legacy of slavery in Rhode Island at sites where slavery and the struggle for abolition took place. With support from RICH, scholars and artists are working together to craft texts and create original imagery for projections. In Providence, we will illuminate Brown’s University Hall, built in 1770 by four known slave laborers. Projection/performance events in Providence, Woonsocket and Cranston will be live streamed as three chapters in one statewide performance.

This event was postponed until August 26 due to inclement weather.

Past Artivist Projections can be found at https://thewomxnproject.org/projections/
