Center for the Study of Slavery and Justice


K-12 Programs

The CSSJ is a hub of educational resources that provides access to curriculum geared toward Rhode Island students that meets the needs of our diverse multilingual learners. Our educational program also offers professional development through restorative justice and responsive classroom frameworks to teachers and educational leaders.

High School Programs

The best part is being with people, like me, who care about diversity issues and want to do something about it…We’re learning how to solve these issues together as a group.

Slavery & Legacy Walking Tours

Students can also engage with the Center through our Slavery & Legacy Walking Tours. We ask that all requests are made at least two weeks in advance in order for our team to properly manage the logistics. Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you on a tour soon!
