Rhode Island Latino History at the Southside Cultural Center
Wednesday April 8th @6pm
393 Broad St.
Free and open to the public!
Today the Trinity Methodist Church, and the Southside Cultural Center (SCC) that operates out of its parish house, is a gateway to Providence’s south side. The building is alive with activity from the various cultural organizations housed within, but it wasn’t always on such solid footing. In 1995, The Trinity United Methodist Church was placed on the Most Endangered Properties list due to its dwindling congregation and limited financial resources. In 2007, a new non-profit named Trinity Restoration Inc. was formed to oversee the development and re-modeling of the Trinity Theater and its parish house into the SCC.
Among the many local organizations housed within the Cultural Cetner is Rhode Island Latino Arts, who are undertaking a comprehensive oral history of the Latino community in Rhode Island, identifying significant sites and stories from the last sixty years.
Join PPS as we learn more about work going on at the Southside Cultural Center and Trinity Church, and dive into the work taking place at SCC with Marta Martinez of RI Latino Arts.
