Four crises have faced America in the recent past: the Covid-19 pandemic, the sweeping economic downturn because of it, the strengthening Black Lives Matter movement, and the shaky foundations of democracy under the Trump administration. All those crises came to a head in the murder of George Floyd. He was infected with Covid-19 at the time of his death. He had been laid off from the restaurant he worked at. He was a victim of racism in a time when the President all but tried to erase the work done by the president before him, Barack Obama.

In Race Against Time, Keith Boykin breaks down the history of systemic racism in our country, something that has transcended political parties and leaders. Boykin contends that America can no longer avoid its long overdue reckoning of its racist past. Ignoring the pleas of Black and brown people, he argues, can no longer be tolerated and, if it continues, the union cannot be saved.

Keith Boykin is a CNN political commentator, New York Times best-selling author, and a former White House aide to President Bill Clinton. He is the co-founder and first board president of the National Black Justice Coalition.

In The Viking Heart, Arthur Herman melds a compelling historical narrative with cutting-edge archaeological discoveries and DNA research to trace the epic story of this remarkable and truly diverse people. He shows how the Scandinavian experience has universal meaning, and how we can still be inspired by their indomitable spirit and the strength of their community bonds, much needed in our deeply polarized society today. The Vikings’ lives “teach us a lesson of how shared culture and community—the foundation of the Viking heart—can empower us all in the midst of disruptive change and even chaos. Modern Scandinavians have retained those teachings . . . and forged a path that points the way forward for all of us, including in today’s America.”

The police cannot be reformed. This is the assertion of human rights lawyer Derecka Purnell. Instead, she believes, new systems need to be created to address the root causes of violence. Since the police cannot be reformed, they should be abolished.

In Becoming Abolitionists, Purnell highlights social movements and activists through time and space, the lessons learned from them, and the elements of policing that no longer serve us. From South Africa to Ferguson, Missouri (where the Black Lives Matter movement was ignited after the police shooting death of the unarmed Black teenager, Michael Brown); from Reconstruction to contemporary protests against police shootings, Purnell looks at the roots of police reform and the ways it has failed and will continue to fail. Instead, Purnell asserts, society needs to eliminate its reliance on policing. The prison-industrial complex must be dissolved. Communities must rebuild labor organizing and disrupt wealth inequality. Laws must be passed around prison labor, voting rights, gun ownership, campaign finance, and decriminalize thousands of behaviors. Social workers and mental health experts need to be on the front lines. This all is a daunting list to get through. It might not be done tomorrow, but, again, a young Black life might be lost tomorrow.

Diwali (Festival of Lights) is a major cultural celebration observed throughout India every fall. It symbolizes the victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance. Light is a metaphor for knowledge and consciousness. During Diwali in India, houses and business locations are brightly illuminated with lamps, diyas (oil lamps), and candles. Lakshmi, the Goddess of Wealth, is worshiped for prosperity. Diwali is celebrated with families and friends, wearing new clothes, partaking in family feasts, enjoying delicious sweets, sharing gifts and most importantly, setting off firecrackers!

Seattle Center Festál presents Diwali: Lights of India in partnership with Northwest Share. This year’s virtual festival features music, dance, visual art, martial arts, a cooking demonstration and more.

This event is free and open to the public.

In The Viking Heart, Arthur Herman melds a compelling historical narrative with cutting-edge archaeological discoveries and DNA research to trace the epic story of this remarkable and truly diverse people. He shows how the Scandinavian experience has universal meaning, and how we can still be inspired by their indomitable spirit and the strength of their community bonds, much needed in our deeply polarized society today. The Vikings’ lives “teach us a lesson of how shared culture and community—the foundation of the Viking heart—can empower us all in the midst of disruptive change and even chaos. Modern Scandinavians have retained those teachings . . . and forged a path that points the way forward for all of us, including in today’s America.”

The Hmong people are an ethnic group who have maintained their own language, customs and ways of life, while adopting the ways of the country they live in, since the Hmong do not have a country of their own. The Hmong New Year Celebration was created to give thanks to ancestors and welcome a new beginning. This is the biggest festive holiday celebrated where Hmong communities exist. Traditionally, this celebration lasts for ten days, but has been shortened in the U.S. Everyone dresses in traditional Hmong clothing and enjoy traditional food, dance and music. One very popular part of the Hmong New Year is, ‘Pov Pob’ tossing ball between two people, a form of courtship

Seattle Center Festál presents Hmong New Year Celebration in partnership with Hmong Association of Washington (HAW). The festival celebrates the end of the harvest season with intricate clothing, dance, food, and more.

This event is free and open to the public.
