Stages of Freedom presents its annual Tea Party,
co-sponsored with Preserve Rhode Island, for young girls of color. Our host, Lady Estelle Barada, a Black Victorian re-enactor, uses taking tea to teach social graces and etiquette to young girls.
A long tradition in the Black community, tea parties were used to teach manners, networking and raise funds for important causes.
Enjoy tea, pastries and music in the historic Gov. Lippitt House Museum.

I am a Living History Reenactor and Docent at the Historic Hearthside House in Lincoln, RI .
I enjoy dressing in historic attire and tell stories of how women lived
in the past. It is educational and also stimulates the imagination.
I am also studying the role African American women played in history. I
am working on a persona of a great historian to educate all about the
contribution of Blacks to this historical era.
I want my page to be fun, educational and relaxing.
Come often and have a cup of tea with me... I will be adding great
photos for you to enjoy and comment on. I hope you will enjoy your stay
here!... Anyway, "Please Come In my Dears, and Do not Forget to "Leave
Your Calling Card" at the Door"! Welcome!
