Pierce County Reads Partner Program

March 15, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

Join us at the museum for the kick off event to this program. The History Museum teams up with the Pierce County Library System to bring you a special program in partnership with Pierce County READS. 

Learn about the history of Tacoma’s civil rights movement through a special exhibition at Washington State History Museum. Join us in the auditorium for a screening of the documentary, “Transforming Tacoma: The Struggle for Civil Rights.”

A panel discussion will follow the screening. Hear from Harold Moss, Tacoma’s first African American mayor; Mayor Victoria Woodards; and documentary filmmaker Sid Lee.
Also find out more about this year’s Pierce County Reads selection.

For 11 years, Pierce County READS has encouraged residents to read copies of the same book at the same time and engage together in a countywide conversation that celebrates and explores the power and importance of books.

Award-winning, #1 New York Times best-selling graphic novel trilogy “March” brings the memories of the Civil Rights Movement to life. Co-author Congressman John Lewis (Georgia), a key figure of the Civil Rights Movement, shares his remarkable story with co-author Andrew Aydin and illustrator Nate Powell to educate and inspire a new generation.
