On behalf of Roger Williams National Memorial and our community partners, I am pleased to announce Inspired Providence — a lecture series that takes a bold look at our city’s rich cultural history from Roger Williams’ “lively experiment” in 1636 to the rise of a Creative Capital.
This fall, seven nights of civic discourse and lively debate will take place at cultural institutions across Rhode Island. Come along as we explore the events, individuals, and beliefs that have inspired Providence both past and present!
On Thursday, September 29th at 6 pm, please join us for the kick-off event at Roger Williams National Memorial as park ranger and local historian John McNiff revisits 375 years of interpretation and transformation at the memorial site.
All events begin at 6 pm, are free, and open to the public. For a full schedule and list of venues please visit our website at www.nps.gov/rowi or download a full schedule here.
Come experience Rhode Island history!
