Living the Dream, Dreaming the Life: Edwin Pratt in the 21st Century
Date & Time: Saturday, January 26, 2019 6:30pm-8:30pm
Location: Shoreline City Hall 17500 Midvale Ave N. Shoreline, WA 98133
The exhibition commemorates the legacy of civil rights activist and Executive Director at the Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle, Edwin T. Pratt, who was assassinated at his Shoreline home on January 26, 1969. Artists present their interpretation to the exhibit theme and are inspired by select images from the recently donated Pratt Legacy Collection that was a gift to the Black Heritage Society of Washington State by Miriam Pratt with support from long time family friend, Jean Soliz. The process to digitize the entire Collection is funded by King County 4Culture and photographed by Ken Winnick.
