“A Matter of Truth” Dives Into Rhode Island’s History of Discrimination
The new State House exhibit presented by the Rhode Island Black Heritage Society explores the lives of African heritage residents from the 1600s to the present.
While the Rhode Island State House has always been a destination for teachers and students eager to learn how our state government operates, today it is home to a different type of education.
“A Matter of Truth,” a new exhibit presented by the Rhode Island Black Heritage Society and 1696 Heritage Group in partnership with Secretary of State Gregg Amore. The exhibit traces the history of Rhode Island’s African heritage residents and the discrimination they faced from the 1620s to the present day.
The exhibit is located in the Lower Level Hall in the State House.
