Join the ECC community for dinner and an opportunity to listen, learn and engage in dialogue with King County Councilmember Larry Gossett, former student activist and one of the founders of the Black Student Union at the UW. As a student activist he fought to eliminate racial discrimination and increase the enrollment for students of color. Mr. Gossett also known as “one of Seattle’s best known young black radicals” was instrumental in bringing programs like the Educational Opportunity Program and creating a space for underrepresented students at the Ethnic Cultural Center. Join us as we celebrate and stand strong for 45 years in the Nation’s largest ethnic cultural center on a university campus. As we celebrate Martin Luther King’s birthday week, let’s appreciate the unity in our communities, past activists who paved the way and to those who continue to unite and serve our communities like Councilmember Gossett.
Students and UW community are welcome to attend for dinner and discussion with Councilmember Gossett.
