Help us fundraise for the Green Party of RI 25th Anniversary Summit! Come shop with Stages of Freedom and enjoy refreshments while networking with local supporters. 2017 is the anniversary of multiple important progressive-left events in recent history. Come learn about how these events shaped the Black experience and tradition in America. From Richard Wright to Claudia Jones and W.E.B. Du Bois, so many important work of literature have been written over the past 100 years that are worth studying. Black youth in Rhode Island drown at five times the rate of white youth. Children who know how to swim grow up and teach their neighbors and cousins how to swim, and eventually their own children and grandchildren. In this way, we can reverse the terrible effects that the long history of institutional racism and the exclusion of African Americans from our nation's public pools brought about.
