History Café: Paying Tribute to Seattle’s Black Landmarks and their Namesakes


Wednesday February 15


6:30 PM  –  8:00 PM

Landmark names reflect the values, dreams and remembrances of a city’s residents. Yet when walking around Seattle, most viewers don’t know the people behind the names of local iconic sites. Join historian Mary Henry for a discussion of her new book, Tributes: Black People Whose Names Grace Seattle Sites, and learn about the lives of the many Black figures whose names are found on street signs, parks, concert halls and more.

History Café is produced as a partnership between HistoryLink and MOHAI.

Detailed information on how to participate will be provided via email following registration. Spots are limited so register early!
