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. For additional accessibility support, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org two weeks before the program.
