Tour The Northwest African American Museum with PSARA

By Frank Irigon, Chair, PSARA Diversity Committee

The PSARA Diversity Committee invites PSARA members to its second event of the year. The Committee will sponsor a tour and discussion at the Northwest African American Museum (NWAAM). The tour will focus on the history, art, and culture of persons of African descent who came to the Pacific Northwest.

A Northwest African American Museum docent will guide us as we tour the current exhibits at the NWAAM, including the Journey, which traces the cultural roots of northwest African Americans.

There will be a discussion period after the tour, led by the docent, but also including members of PSARA’s Diversity Committee. After the tour and discussion, we will go for a no-host lunch at a nearby restaurant, for those who wish to continue the discussion or just socialize and share what we have learned.

The tour will be limited to 25 PSARA members and reservations are on a first-come, first-serve basis. The museum is located at 2300 S. Massachusetts St., Seattle.

Please RSVP by no later than Jan. 20 to Robby Stern, at, or call the PSARA office, 206-448-9646. Let us know if you want to attend the tour only or if you want to attend both the tour and the lunch. We will contact you to let you know if you are among the first 25 or if you have been placed on a waiting list.
