Digital Exhibit & Mobile Tour
Organizing New Bedford: Women Who Mobilized Change is a new digital exhibit and mobile tour that explores the countless ways women have mobilized residents of “The City that Lit the World” to create positive change. Through stories, images, videos and supplemental resources, trace the history of these movements and the legacies of seven historic New Bedford women from Lighting the Way.
To encourage the use of Organizing New Bedford: Women Who Mobilized Change in the classroom, a collection of curriculum alignments and supplemental resources is available on the Lighting the Way Education tab.

About Rhode Tour
Rhode Tour is a free mobile app and website that tells stories by and about Rhode Islanders. A joint initiative of the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities, Brown University’s John Nicholas Brown Center for Public Humanities and Cultural Heritage, and the Rhode Island Historical Society, Rhode Tour brings mapping technology, sound, images, videos and well-told stories together to engage us in learning about the places we live, work, visit—or perhaps simply pass by—in Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts. Visit www.rhodetour.org to take a thematic tour sitting at your computer, or download the app for free from the Apple Store or Google Play to experience Rhode Island the SouthCoast in a whole new way.
