Listen, Whitey at the Life Enrichment Bookstore in Seattle Tonight!
Written by janice headley | Filed under Pat Thomasevents 20 Apr 2012 7:11 AM

Listen, Whitey! The Sights and Sounds of Black Power 1965-1975

It's a homecoming tonight for our editor Pat Thomas, who is back in town in the middle of his book tour for Listen, Whitey! The Sights and Sounds of Black Power 1965-1975!

And it's an extra special event, because it's also a benefit for the Life Enrichment Bookstore, Seattle's only Black-owned and operated bookstore. It has been in business for more than 17 years and has provided healing, history, support, and transformation through educational workshops, book clubs, and celebrations.

Join Pat there tonight, Friday, April 20th, from 6:00 to 9:00 PM! He will be doing a reprise of the tremendous multimedia presentation for Listen, Whitey! that he did at Washington Hall last month.

He will be joined by special guest, Aaron Dixon, the founder of the Seattle Black Panther Party back in the '60s.  His lecture will capture first-hand knowledge of the legendary Black Panthers, as well as Seattle’s contemporary African-American landscape.

Pat will also be joined by Dr. Maxine Mimms, founder of the Tacoma campus of Evergreen State College, which has provided the Black community of Tacoma the opportunity of the Evergreen college experience. In the early 1960’s, when she taught in Seattle, one of her students was Jimi Hendrix!

This is sure to be a very special night to benefit a very special bookstore!  Proceeds will help keep the Life Enrichment Bookstore thriving as a business and gathering place for village building activities. The Life Enrichment Bookstore is located at 5023 Rainier Avenue South in Seattle.
