May 22 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

You’re invited to attend Rainier Valley Historical Society’s 130th Annual Meeting for Members and Friends!
Featuring guest author Ron Chew, on his newly released book, My Unforgotten Seattle. Third-generation Seattleite, historian, journalist, and museum visionary Ron Chew spent more than five decades fighting for Asian American and social justice causes in Seattle. In his deeply personal memoir, Ron documents the tight-knit community he remembers, describing small family shops, chop suey restaurants, and sewing factories now vanished. Ron highlights Seattle’s unsung champions in the fight for racial inclusion, political empowerment, American ethnic studies, Asian American arts, Japanese American redress, and revitalization of the Chinatown-International District. Ron led the successful campaign to transform a historic hotel into the Wing Luke Museum.
