Segregated Seattle: Walk the Infamous Red Line

This event has passed.

Join MOHAI and the Pacific Northwest Historians Guild for a series of social history walking tours around Seattle this summer!

Walk along the infamous “red line,” hallmark of racial inequity and housing segregation. This family-friendly walk, led by Merlin Rainwater, highlights the lingering physical impacts of redlining in our city.

The 1.5 hour tour begins at Mount Zion Baptist Church and includes a meal break.

This event is sold-out, and the wait list is now full.

Looking for more ways to explore Seattle’s story this summer? The social history walking tour series continues in August with Becoming a City: Walking North Lake’s Urban Evolution.  

Location: Leaves from Mount Zion Baptist Church, 1634 19th Avenue, Seattle, WA 98122

Cost: $10 for MOHAI and PNW Historians Guild members / $20 general public
