The Rhode Island Historical Preservation & Heritage Commission, Rhode Island Black Heritage Society, and Rhode Island Historical Society collaborated on a project funded by the National Park Service for a multi-phase project on African Americans’ Struggle for Civil Rights in Rhode Island: The 20th Century. The project consisted of conducting archival research, collecting oral histories, and documenting places of significance to civil rights in Rhode Island. Public exhibits and school unit plans were also created thanks to this grant.
