Latinos in Rhode Island Bilingual Rhode Tour

Read, see and hear about storied places, economic tales, and religious communities that have helped Latinos make Providence and Rhode Island their home using the new Latinos in Rhode Island Bilingual Rhode Tour. The project was funded as a product of the Latino Americans: 500 Years of History grant from the American Library Association and National Endowment for the Humanities.

Rhode Tour is an app and website that puts Rhode Island stories on the map. Linked to particular locations, Rhode Tour uses stories, oral histories, images, and movies to reveal history behind the place. Rhode Tour is a joint initiative of the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities, Brown University’s John Nicholas Brown Center for Public Humanities and Cultural Heritage, and the Rhode Island Historical Society. This tour was made in partnership with Rhode Island Latino Arts.
