The latest episode is all about train travel in the USA. I talk about taking a train from Charlotte, NC to New York, NY. In addition, I talk about some historic women in railroad. There’s even a quick story from an African-American Freight Train Engineer!
When we were at the Beck Cultural Exchange Center, we heard about world re-nowned artists, the Delaney Brothers, Beauford and Joseph. Eventually the Beck Center will have a separate building dedicated to the brothers. But for now, I thought I would go down to the KMA and check out their art. It turns out that the KMA is going to be having an exhibit featuring Beauford next month. So, I’m going to wait to discuss the Delaney brothers. Instead, I’m going to talk about the female artists exhibited.
Thank you for visiting and listening to the latest episode!
Did I eat in Boston? Did I drink? Yes, yes, I did. Listen to the episode to find out where and what. Hint, there was Guinness involved. In addition to Boston eats, this episode includes the Derby in Salem, MA and some dining in Providence, Rhode Island.
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.
While in Boston, I knew that I had to make the trip up to Salem. Did I mention that it was October? So, on a Saturday, in October, I went to Salem. It was rainy and busy. The pics don’t show a lot of people because they were all at the witch museum. After Salem, I headed back into Boston to check out the Museum of Fine Arts Boston.
