On October 14 (at Naked City Brewing in Greenwood) and October 22 (Royal Room in Columbia City) Humanities Washington presented a program entitled Loud and Proud, Washington State’s Asian American Civil Rights Movement.
The event was part of the 2014 Think & Drink program which is exploring the topics of Race, Place, and Culture. Featured speakers were Connie So of the University of Washington and Kevin Owyang, a documentary filmmaker. The conversation was moderated by Tonya Mosley.
The Think & Drink program takes conversations based in the humanities into places where people already gather socially – pubs and tasting rooms. The goal is to provide historic and cultural context for current issues and encourage civil and productive dialogue around contentious topics. (end)
