A Black Lives Matter march took place in Newport in June

Join the Newport Historical Society for a Civic Conversation on Thursday, July 9. 2020 from 5-6:30 pm virtually on Zoom.

This fourth Civic Conversation will build on past discussions about “Americanness,” Crisis, and Liberty and will focus on the question “How American is Protest, and How Much Protest is American?” These gatherings are meant to bring diverse perspectives, always including an historical one, to issues that face us today. Never looking for consensus, we seek to encourage free expression and listening, even when, or particularly when we do not agree.

For a sense of what happens at a Civic Conversation, you can view a video and synopsis of the most recent event on NewportHistory.org.
