Ruth J. Simmons Center for the Study of Slavery and Justice
The Civil Rights Movement Initiative (CRMI) is an after school program that serves students from three Providence public high schools.
The Slavery & Legacy Tours examine the history behind Brown University, the State of Rhode Island and their roles in the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. The tours help students (K-12 +college) as well as adult groups think critically about the University and state histories.
Embedded within the American social, political, and economic systems are various forms of structural violences. The Center for the Study of Slavery and Justice's series This Is America explores how these structures and systems are rooted in anti-Black racism.
