VOL 56

August 26, 2014
@ Northwest African American Museum

The civil protest in Ferguson, Missouri that began after the murder of Mike Brown has served as a tragic flashpoint for American racism, past and present. Pecha Kucha Seattle, the Northwest African American Museum and Seattle People of Color Salon will host PKN SEA vol. 56 #Ferguson. The event will bring together many different voices from our communities to explore how we can challenge racism and work towards envisioning and creating communities of love and solidarity.
