Behind the Scenes:
The Upper Floors of Lippitt House Museum
Ever wondered what’s at the top of the stairs and behind the closed doors? Join museum director Carrie Taylor for this virtual event and see the private spaces that are not included on a regular tour of Lippitt House. Now’s your chance to explore the second and third floors of the house where the Lippitt family, their guests, and live-in servants lived. View historic images of the spaces as they looked in the 19th century, learn about the people who occupied the spaces, and see what these spaces look like today on this virtual tour. 
This FREE talk will be held virtually via Zoom. Pre-registration required.
Did You Miss the Community Conversations?
This month Lippitt House Museum with the Providence League of Women Voters hosted two powerful and important conversations discussing the systematic barriers that keep young people and the formerly incarcerated from fully participating in civic society. Videos of both conversations are now available to watch on our YouTube channel.

Niamiah Jefferson, Samia Nash, and Nancy Xiong with seasoned activists Rochelle Bates Lee, member of the RI Human Rights Commission, and Raymond Two Hawks Watson, CEO/Founder of Providence Cultural Equity Initiative.

Barriers to Democratic Participation for Formerly Incarcerated People brings together members of the Reentry Campus Program Stanley Alston, Meko Lincoln, James Monteiro, and Shannon Sampson in conversation with Associate Justice of the Rhode Island Supreme Court Melissa Long and State Representative Scott Slater of Providence.

"Believe the people in these situations, believe their perspectives."

Women's History Month
During March we remember that women’s history is integrated into all aspects of history. Lippitt House Museum uses the stories of the women who lived and worked at Lippitt House to help tell the story of Rhode Island and our nation. One of the ways the Museum has done this recently is examining the political activism of some of the Lippitt women in response to the women's suffrage campaign to explore the history of voting rights in Rhode Island. You can find an interactive timeline, recorded discussions, and an exhibit about "radical women" of Rhode Island on our web page commemorating the Centennial of Women's Suffrage.
Your donations make programs like these possible.
