Episode Description:

Nestled in part of Downtown Providence, Rhode Island, the only actual “real” open space in this industrial city is Roger Williams National Memorial, part of the National Park System, dedicated to the principal of freedom: free speech and freedom of religion. In today’s world where religious freedoms are constantly being challenged, this oasis of thought provides the background to understand how America came to appreciate the concept of Freedom of Religion. Join us as Along the Blackstone’s Episode #47 takes on a journey back to the time of Roger Williams in the 1630’s where we will gain new appreciation for the extent of religious persecution that was part of the British North American landscape and how that applies to our world today. Join us as we come to know Roger Williams, a man who would argue over religious principles, but defend to his death your right to express them.
