In The Media again!





Stages of Freedom presented its sixth annual gala event on Sunday. The event is co-sponsored with Preserve Rhode Island, which provides an opportunity for young girls of color to attend a tea party in an elegant and historic setting.
WATCH VIDEO ABOVE
This year, Lady Estelle Barada, a Victorian re-enactor from Providence, known for her tea parties for girls in her East Side home, taught the art of taking tea, social etiquette and table manners to 45 young girls.
The party is part of a long tradition in the Black community of using tea parties to teach manners, social network, and raise awareness & funds for important causes.
Girls wore their best party dresses and enjoyed tea, pastries and music in the historic Gov. Lippitt House Museum.

 Sybil Bailey for donating the beautiful porcelain doll which we auctioned off at the party for $50.

Who does not love Mrs Gordon?.

She is such a lovely entertainer. I have seen her once live and found her to be an inspiration.
