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

Wednesday, February 15, 2023
6:30 – 8 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.

ASL Interpretation and CART captioning is available during the program through generous support of the Institute for Museum and Library Services. For additional accessibility support, please contact programs@mohai.org two weeks before the program.

If you can’t make it to the museum, tune in live on MOHAI’s Facebook page to virtually attend this program, linked below.
