Embracing the histories, arts and culture of African Americans in the Pacific Northwest.
NAAM was so honored to co-host last night’s book talk with Town Hall and @elliottbaybookco. Featured here with Stacy Abrams and @jayinslee in the Green Room before we took to the stage. We were delighted to introduce Governor Inslee & @staceyabrams as she was speaking in Seattle about her book, Lead From the Outside. We were so happy to see so many people welcome her to our wonderful city. Thank you for joining us!

Come join us this Saturday at 11am! This program is free and open to the public. It is the culmination of our 2019 Dr. Carver Gayton Youth Curator Program, where we will unveil their public service announcement video entitled 'Scuse Me: Do You Know Jimi?'. They worked under the tutelage of Stephanie Johnson-Toliver, Inye Wokoma, and the @nfftyfilm to bring to life this video that pays homage to Jimi Hendrix. We are so proud of them!

Together, NAAM did it! We met and exceeded our 2019 luncheon fundraising goal. Thank you to our sponsors, donors, members, and community for showing up for NAAM in such a big way. We thank each of you for your amazing support in helping us leap forward in such a significant way this year. You are each part of the winning formula. This is a proud moment for NAAM and for the #NAAMily. We can achieve great things, together. Stay tuned for more photos!
