People, Politics, and Place - History Guild 2020 Conference
The Pacific Northwest History Guild's 2020 Conference is on March 7, 2020, at the Central Branch of the Seattle Public Library. It will kick off with a keynote speech by veteran Seattle journalist Knute Berger.

In this election year, the conference theme is People, Politics, and Place. Bergers keynote is titled, Nazis, Lynchings, and the Lash Law:  Why the Northwest must faceand embraceits Dark Side. Berger, former editor of the Seattle Weekly and a columnist for Crosscut.com, writes:  

Regularly described now as a stronghold of liberal coastal politics, the Pacific Northwest also has a long and dark history of politics. Whether its local fascist movements of the 1930s or racial exclusion laws, these policies have fundamentally shaped our region from the earliest days of settlement. Drawing on stories I have written about these subjects, I will provide deeper perspectives on issues, of race, immigration, and political division that are often found in past many want to forget.

Bergers keynote will be followed by 28 presentations on the subjects of womens suffrage, union and immigrant rights and citizenship, Native American rights and identities, the regional military establishment, Asian and Asian-American political influence, trail and parks activism, researching and writing history, and many others.
