Seattle's Civil Rights Movement: A Walking Tour of the Central District
Neither the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s nor the racially discriminating practices that fueled it were limited to the Deep South. In Seattle, de facto housing segregation confined the majority of the city's African American residents to the Central District and racial inequality was widespread in schools and in the workplace. The Central District neighborhood was a hotbed of activity in the 1960s, as men and women working or living in the area led the local Civil Rights Movement. Explore this rich history on a two hour walking tour, led by docents from the Museum of History & Industry and the Northwest African American Museum.

This program is offered in conjunction with the exhibit Freedom Riders, on view at MOHAI September 26 through October 24. It is presented by the Museum of History & Industry and the Northwest African American Museum.    

Meet at: Langston Hughes Performing Arts Center, 104 17th Ave. S. This walking tour will cover about 1.5 miles; please wear appropriate shoes. Tour will end approximately half a mile from the starting point.
