History Café: Learn about Seattle history in May and June

Every third Wednesday of the month, the Seattle Public Library co-presents History Café: evening presentations and panel discussions on Seattle and Pacific Northwest history at the Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI), 860 Terry Ave N., in the museum's Compass Café.

Library events and programs are free and open to the public. Registration is not required. Dates, times and locations for upcoming History Café events are as follows:

Fighting Segregated Housing in the 1970s and 1980s - Wednesday, May 16 from 6:30pm to 7:30pm
What exactly did Seattle's open housing movement achieve? How were Seattle's neighborhoods transformed in the wake of fair housing legislation?

Once hemmed in to the Central District by restrictive covenants, Seattle's African-American population slowly moved southward during the 1970s and 1980s. Join scholar Michael Matsumaru to learn about the ways in which Seattle's segregated housing patterns were challenged, and how the city's racial geography changed in the midst of a housing crisis.

Matsumaru recently completed his PhD in history at Carnegie Mellon University. His dissertation is entitled 'Unmasking a City: Blacks, Asians and the Struggle against Segregated Housing in 20th Century Seattle.'

Exploring Land Trusts with Queer the Land - Wednesday, June 20 from 6:30pm to 7:30pm
Community land trusts were born from a legacy of people living and working together to build sustainable communities.

Join Seattle's newest housing collective for queer and trans people of color, Queer The Land, as it explores the history of land trusts in Washington state, from housing projects to how land trusts have saved Washington's farmers. Queer the Land will also share its favorite cooperative economic land-based projects across the U.S.

History Café is co-presented by the Seattle Public Library, MOHAI and HistoryLink.

For more information, contact the Seattle Public Library at (206) 386-4636 or https://www.spl.org/, or visit our History Café page at https://www.spl.org/audiences/adults/history-cafe. For ADA accommodations, please contact: leap@spl.org.
