Zoom lecture organized by Newport Mansions
Thursday, August 27, 2020 | 5:30 p.m.
On the subject of Newport’s and Rhode Island’s African-American history, no one is more expert than Theresa Guzman Stokes and Keith Stokes. We are thrilled that they will be the guest speakers for our annual lecture in Honor of John G. Winslow on Thursday, August 27, at 5:30 p.m. via Zoom video conference.
Their multimedia presentation – Power, Privilege & Preservation: The History of African American Civil Rights in Newport, Rhode Island – will include images of rare documents and photographs depicting African-American life in Newport dating back to the 18th century. But Keith and Theresa will also trace the struggle of African-Americans to achieve civil rights up to the present day, as well as current efforts to preserve relevant historic sites.
