Enjoy a conversation between Marta V. Martínez and Doña Fefa Rosario, who together will talk about the transformation of La Broa' since the 1960s. Doña Fefa and her husband Tony, opened the first Dominican-owned bodega on Broad Street in Providence in the early-1960s. The Rosarios helped the growing number of families from the Dominican Republic who moved to Rhode Island and made it one of the largest Dominican communities in the United States.

NOTE: We will be walking on busy sidewalks and crossing a highway overpass. Traffic may be busy that time of day, so we do not recommend that you bring small children or strollers. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes.

Meet at 4:45PM in the grass area of the Roger Williams Park @Broad Street entrance in Providence, RI 02905.

Ample parking on Miller Street and also on Broad Street, in front of the park.
