Homelessness is not a new issue in Seattle, but how we approach this complex topic has varied throughout the decades.

Join us as Anne Frantilla and Jeanie Fisher from the Seattle Municipal Archives walk us through the ways Seattle’s government and residents have responded to homelessness, from the Hoovervilles of the Great Depression to the Nickelsvilles of the 21st century, and today.

History Café is produced as a partnership between HistoryLink and MOHAI.

ASL Interpretation and CART captioning are available during the program. In addition, a limited number of Assistive Listening Devices are available upon request. For more accessibility support, email [email protected] two weeks before the program.

Grab some food for thought–Gourmondo at MOHAI remains open until 7pm for every History Café.

If you can’t make it to the museum, tune in live on the MOHAI YouTube channel to virtually attend this event.
