Description

In 19th century Seattle, black residents as well as black visitors to the city experienced more opportunities for racial equality and economic progress than in almost any other city in the nation. Professor Taylor's talk will detail factors which created that environment and explore why conditions changed in the early 20th century and how that change has affected today's community.

Speaker Quintard Taylor is the Scott and Dorothy Bullitt Professor of American History at the University of Washington in Seattle.
