The event creator says
“Dismantling Racism: a community forum for Southeast Seattle” is a new monthly event co-sponsored by Rainier Valley Historical Society, SouthEast Seattle Effective Development (SEED), and South Seattle Emerald. The format will be a combination of information sharing and discussion. Each event will start with a lecture or presentation by an individual, group, or representative(s) of an organization. This will be followed by a group discussion, with participation among everyone in attendance encouraged.

Everyone is welcome to attend, including people from outside of Southeast Seattle. The event is free to the public.

Positive response on this has been higher than expected, so we are asking people to RSVP so we can gauge attendance and the capacity of our event space. The event is still free. Please reserve your space online: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/dismantling-racism-a-community-forum-for-southeast-seattle-tickets-17141697278

The juried show at the Columbia City Gallery during April and May, “Black Lives Matter: Humanity Not Negotiable” was an exhibition of works by artists examining the impact of state violence on Black lives, and expanding the conversation about anti-Black racism in the wake of the killings of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, and Eric Garner. For our first community forum, we have asked curator Naomi Ishisaka and some of the featured artists to speak about the show, and talk about the vital issues that it addressed.
