Lippitt House Mansion

199 Hope Street, Providence

Limited to 45 Girls! 


Stages of Freedom presents this sixth annual gala event, 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. This year, Lady Estelle Barada, a Victorian re-enactor from Providence, known for her tea parties for girls in her East Side home, will teach 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 wear their best party dresses and enjoy tea, pastries and music in the historic Gov. Lippitt House Museum.

Sponsors play an important role in our Girls Party! They make a difference by providing opportunities for girls to attend this unique event and helping underwrite its expense. Sponsors make this amazing tea party possible!

Thank You:  

Lady Estelle Barada; Beyanca & Mia Guilme; Sabrie Pearl Davis Griffin; Nicole Tingle; Jimmyla McCarty
