Library events and programs are free and open to the public. Registration is not required. Parking is available in the Central Library garage for $6 after 5 p.m.
PechaKucha 20x20 is a simple presentation format that shows 20 images for 20 seconds each. Vol. 71 of this event will bring together experts and speakers from across Seattle - including policy makers, teachers, advocates and others - to discuss the complex issues surrounding white privilege and racial justice.
This evening's conversation is an attempt to get beyond the narrow confines of discussing white privilege by specifically asking individual white people how they are working, with intention and accountability, with communities of color, to center people of color and be supportive of collective work to end racism and create a deeper collective humanity.
