Tacoma Historical Society 11th Annual Destiny Dinner
Fighting for Dreams that Matter: Honoring Tacoma Civil Rights Pioneers
On Saturday October 14th, the Tacoma Historical Society will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Tacoma Human Rights Commission and Washington State’s first Black Student Union Chapter formed on the University of Puget Sound campus. This milestone year offers all of us the opportunity to recognize and honor Tacoma’s efforts to achieve social justice and human rights.
Join with us for a celebratory evening of recognition and honor that will include such speakers as Tacoma Mayor Marilyn Strickland, UPS President Isiaah Crawford and other community notables. Composer Greg Youtz will introduce for the first time two selections from his opera about the Chinese Expulsion, and Tacoma Historical Society will present its prestigious Star of Destiny Award.
The annual Destiny Dinner is an important fundraising event for the Tacoma Historical Society as it continues to keep history alive in the City of Destiny. Please join with our sponsors as we celebrate and honor the work of the Human Rights Commission, over its 50 years, as well as the many students who served and continue to serve as members of the Puget Sound Black Student Union.
