African American Resources
Building a sense of community amongst African Americans in South King County is an important aspect of KBAC. With programs like our annual Juneteenth Celebration, Youth Leadership Project, the KBAC Newsletter, and more, we establish important lines of communication within that community and provide visibility to the issues and concerns of our members as well as valuable resources available.
What does it mean to be African American in the Pacific Northwest? It is a beautiful range of colors and hues — a diversity of experiences and locations. African Americans come from a variety of countries of origin, both known and unknown representing an assortment of religions, a staggering array of occupations, a multitude of co-workers, neighbors, friends and families, and an ever evolving community that continues to shape and reshape the human experience in the Pacific Northwest region. The Northwest African American Museum invites you to explore this continually changing story, for it is yours, it is mine, it is all of ours.
