About the Museum of Work & Culture

 

The interactive and educational Museum of Work & Culture shares the stories of the men, women, and children who came to find a better life in Rhode Island’s mill towns in the late 19th- and 20th centuries. It recently received a Rhode Island Monthly Best of Rhode Island Award for its SensAbilities Saturdays all-ability program.

 

 

 

About the Rhode Island Historical Society

 

Founded in 1822, the RIHS is the fourth-oldest historical society in the United States and is Rhode Island’s largest and oldest historical organization, as well as its only Smithsonian Affiliate. In Providence, the RIHS owns and operates the John Brown House Museum, a designated National Historic Landmark, built in 1788; the Aldrich House, built in 1822 and used for administration and public programs; and the Mary Elizabeth Robinson Research Center, where archival, book and image collections are housed. In Woonsocket, the RIHS manages the Museum of Work and Culture, a community museum examining the industrial history of northern Rhode Island and of the workers and settlers, especially French-Canadians, who made it one of the state’s most distinctive areas.

 

 

 

 

 

French President Emmanuel Macron [[ mah-CRONE ]] is calling for a better Iran deal, but does not want to abandon the current agreement. Addressing U.S. lawmakers today, Macron called for a more comprehensive deal to prevent Iran from building nuclear weapons. He argued that Iran must never be allowed to have nukes. President Trump has called the Iran accord a bad deal that should never have been negotiated.        It's been a violent week for law enforcement. A manhunt is taking place in Maine after a sheriff was killed earlier this morning. Officials have issued a nationwide alert for John Williams of Madison, Maine who they believe is armed and dangerous. Meanwhile, Dallas police officer Rogelio Santander died today after he was shot by a man at a north Texas Home Depot. He was attempting to arrest the man on outstanding warrants yesterday. A second officer was shot and is in stable condition.        The jury in Bill Cosby's sexual assault retrial is now deliberating. The comedian and TV sitcom dad is accused of three counts of aggravated indecent assault in 2004. During closing arguments yesterday in Norristown, Pennsylvania, Cosby's legal team said the prosecution had presented a weak case with questionable witnesses. They claimed accuser Andrea Constand is a pathological liar.        George H.W. Bush is giving thanks to everyone for their kindness following the death of his wife, Barbara Bush. Bush took to Twitter this morning saying all Houstonians did a great job in making sure Barbara Bush's visitors and funeral guests felt welcome. The ex-president particularly thanked Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner and police. Barbara Bush died last week.        A woman known as the "Killer Grandma" is heading to Florida to face murder charges. Lois Riess led police on a nationwide manhunt after allegedly killing her husband in Minnesota, and later killing a woman in Fort Myers, Florida so she could steal her identity. She was arrested last week in Texas.        A widow in Florida is speaking out after detectives showed up at a funeral home and tried to unlock her dead husband's phone with his finger. Victoria Armstrong said detectives attempted to use the fingerprint sensor to unlock the phone but failed. This move has sparked a debate about using a corpse to access technology for information.
