This program will remind us that racism has come from decisions of courts we still appear before, in buildings we still work in, and from positions which, while occupied today by different people, still exist. Through a discussion of three cases—United States v. Hirabayashi, Price v. Evergreen Cemetery Co. of Seattle, and O’Meara v. Wash. Bd. Against Discrimination, we will ask, given that these courts and positions still exist: What has changed? What hasn’t changed? What is our responsibility to tell the truth and seek reconciliation? How has racial segregation in Seattle left a lasting impact on access to local courts?
