About Me

I am a Docent and tour guide to the historic Hearthside House in Lincoln, RI. I have a passion for the Victorian era.

I am a lover of the art of drinking tea, having Victorian tea parties, and teaching young girls tea etiquette and proper manners in public.

The Fifth Annual Girls Tea Party

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. 

 Wear your best party dress.
