Historic women from Providence, RI

On my trip to Boston, I detoured to Providence to visit a friend. PVD is a beautiful Rhode Island town with some great architecture and rich history. This episode features historic women from Providence, RI.

In this episode, I talk about Helen Metcalf, one of the founders of Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). I also share the story of Mary Dyer, a Quaker martyr. In addition, I talk about Elizabeth Buffum-Chace, an abolitionist and women’s rights advocate. And finally, Christiana Carteux Bannister, abolitionist and founder of the Bannister House.
