Christiana Banister was one of Providence's icon from the 1800's. At every chance I get, I bring her to life and attend historical event where she can make herself known.
On July 24th, the What Cheer Writer's Club was having their new historical website launching and reception. For the guest entertainment and education, I was asked to come dressed in historical attire and mingle.
Well, I became a social butterfly as Christiana. I was amazed that many of the guests had not known who she was. I was honored to tell a little of her life and the legacy she left to Providence.
"The abolition of slavery, caring for those in need, bringing joy and beauty to the world, are Christiana Babcock Carteux Bannister's legacy."
