The October installation in our Dismantling Racism Series will be a presentation on Washington’s Racist Past with Delbert Richardson and a display of selected items from his National Award Winning “American History Traveling Museum: The Unspoken Truths.” The event will include a presentation on historic anti-Black racism in Washington State, and time for audience questions and community discussion.
Feedback from Denise Klein, Executive Director, Senior Services of King County after a previous event: “We were all blown away by the quality of Delbert’s presentation and his extensive collection of material. Everyone at the workshop learned something new and it offered the opportunity to experience and begin to process painful feelings for individuals who had not had that opportunity before. Delbert believes that the truth, when squarely faced, will make us ‘free-er’”
