CFR Unveils new Black History Walking Tour

The Center for Reconciliation (CFR) has introduced a new Black history self-led walking tour on the east side of Providence. The tour has 14 stops between the Cathedral of St. John and India Point Park.

Traci Picard, new CFR program & research associate, helped design the tour and participated in announcing its availability in late January at an event featured in the Providence Journal.

The CFR created the new tour in partnership with the Providence Warwick Convention & Visitors Bureau, and support from Rhode Island Historical Society and Stages of Freedom. To access the self-guided walking tour map, click here . To learn more or request a group tour, go to the CFR website,
