Black History Month (AfricAN aMERICAN hISTORY mONTH)

Prior to 1925, little information could be found in the U.S. about African American history. A widely held belief existed that African Americans had made little contribution to U.S. society. In 1926, Carter G. Woodson spearheaded the first Negro History Week to raise awareness. Fifty years later, the week was expanded to a month. February was selected because of the birthdays of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglas, two individuals who dramatically affected the lives of African Americans. The 2024 Black History Month theme is “African Americans and thr Arts”. African American Art is infused with African, Caribbean, and the Black lived experience. In the fields of visual and performing arts, literature, fashion, floklore, language, film, music, architecture, culinary, and other forms of cultural expression, the African American incluences has been paramount.
Visit (Association for the Study of African American Life and History) for more information.
Visit for a month-long festival of events that will address the 2024 theme.

  • Whisky y escuchas telefónicas: el rey del tráfico de rumores del noroeste<
    On Thanksgiving Day, 1925, Roy Olmstead was trapped by federal prohibition agents and their Tommy guns on alonely Puget Sound dock.
    His reign as the Northwest’s most prolific bootlegger had ended. But big questions—political, cultural, and legal—remained.
    Why did Olmstead, the youngest lieutenant in Seattle Police Department history, form a secret gang to take over
    Prohibition bootlegging in the Northwest? What can we learn today from “The Good Bootlegger’s” story of
    whiskey-driven politics, culture wars, criminalization of popular social behavior, illegal surveillance, spies,
    sensational trials, and Constitution-bending trips to the Supreme Court?
    Using photographs, documents, newspapers, and court cases, Steve Edmiston breathes life into Olmstead’s story
    by exploring historical context, his entrepreneurial brilliance, his code of conduct, and the profound impact of his
    legal battles today.
    Steve Edmiston is a business and entertainment lawyer and lives in Des Moines, near the site of Olmstead’s final arrest
