your Wikli-fix: seedy

What does it take to plant that seed, the kernel of the idea that starts a conversation, opens someone's mind, or moves people to pull together to create a change?

award winning play at the Rainier Valley Cultural Center

Brownbox Theatre proudly presents Obie award winning Zooman and the Sign by Charles Fuller, beginning May 16, 2013 and running through June 6, at the Rainier Valley Cultural Center, 3515 S Alaska St. Produced and directed by Tyrone Brown.

Zooman is a black teen in Philadelphia who senselessly terrorizes his community without regard to race. His most recent crime is the killing of a 12 year-old black girl on a street filled with witnesses all of whom are afraid to talk. The dead girl's bereaved father posts a sign accusing the entire community of cowardice in the face of the ever escalating violence.

new film featuring Got Green's Tammy Nguyen

A new film by up-and-coming Seattle filmmakers Kevin Owyang and Matthew Bane features the work of Tammy Nguyen, Got Green, and is set against the backdrop of civil rights history in Seattle.

History Is Undivided Yearning looks at racial division in Seattle's past and highlights changemakers building a better future. The film walks a fine line of presenting a hopeful future without diluting the challenges of transforming diversity into resilience.

"I hope young people will glimpse a part of history they didn’t know about. And I hope older generations will understand the wisdom young people possess", said Owyang. "It's only 5-minutes. So if you have the attention span of a mosquito, like me, it's perfect." Owyang says jokingly.
