Marc Levitt Presents: “This I Believe” Community Dialogue: What Do the Ideas of Roger Williams Mean to Us Today?"
Are the ideas of Roger Williams still relevant today? Are Williams' beliefs threatened by the contemporary political climate? Is there practical basis for his ideals or are they simply philosophical expression, without a firm foundation?
Join radio host Marc Levitt for a night of discussion and debate on the ways that Roger Williams’ ideas and beliefs have shaped Providence, as well as how they inform and influence our lives today!
