Presented by the League of Women Voters of Bellingham/Whatcom County and the Ralph Munro Institute for Civic Education, this virtual history walking tour will take you from the arrival of the first non-Native settlers on Coast Salish land in the 1850s through the exclusion of Asian Americans and African Americans in Bellingham in the 20th century and the ongoing struggle for social justice in the 21st. Since 2016, Josh Cerretti has been giving tours of Bellingham that highlight the perspectives of people who were marginalized and excluded from official histories and the city itself. A Q&A will follow the screening.
