This program illustrates these connections through a hands-on activity called the “Web of Complicity” that shows the relationships that stretched from the city to the sea in the global enterprise of the slave trade.  This includes a discussion that familiarizes participants with many of the players, places, and materials needed to prepare a ship for a slave-trading voyage in 18th-century Providence. This program also includes a walk through the Sally Exhibit and a few spaces in the museum during our discussion

There is also a virtual option for this program that includes a live, interactive and discussion-based program with a museum educator or a pre-recorded video with the option of a short live follow-up discussion. The virtual program includes a discussion and a short lesson plan on the legacy of slavery, the Brown brother’s active roles in it, and the other figures involved with slave-trading voyages operating during 18th-century Providence.
