Što ćete raditi

We'll start on the river in front the silver circle sculpture and then weave around Brown University and College Hill, stopping to talk at lookouts, public art and private gardens while telling the story of Rhode Island's leading role in the slave trade of the 18th Century. Roger Williams called Rhode Island a "lively experiment." I'll do my best to report how that experiment worked out for Rhode Island and the nation. The walk is about miles and should take about 2 hours. It's hilly. So bring good shoes.

I was a newsman for 47 years: reporter, editor, columnist, webmaster. I now teach journalism at the University of Rhode Island. As a journalist, teacher, runner, reader of history and 18-year resident of Providence's Fox Point-College Hill neighborhood, I know the state's stories and hidden passages around Brown University and colonial Providence. Mine will be an amused and irreverent tour with time to indulge in the lives of the pious and the profane. By rights, Providence should be known as the place the American Revolution began, but the citizens had to keep it quiet. King George had a bounty on John Brown's head.

The tour was informative and entertaining. While some of the topics were heavy, it really brought the history to life as Peter gave a variety of stories and provided examples and quotes.

I learned so much about the area from Peter, and I really appreciated how it was more than just a retelling of the past- it connected the past with our present in a very clear way. Incredibly informative, very interesting, and a great outdoor experience!

Offbeat tour of parts of Providence you won’t get elsewhere. Perfect for people who don’t want the cliche city tour. Would love to do another tour with Peter.

Really great experience. Very informative. It’s a tour that touches on some of the major moments in Providence’s history and focuses on a few of the less well-known parts that you might not get from other tours. I learned a lot. Thanks!!

If you are interested in a fascinating presentation of a slice of the history of Rhode Island and Providence this tour is for you. Peter is a great narrator with a unique perspective. The walking is not too vigorous and the sites are all interesting. Highly recommended experience!

Would definitely recommend this walking tour to anyone who holds an interest in historical figures & events surrounding the early years of enslavement.
