About the Event
Please join us at 4 p.m on Sunday, March 6th for the annual Capitol Hill Historical Society members meeting.
To kick off the meeting, CHHS board member Tamara Bunnell will give a presentation on her involvement with the recently released production, Friends Across the Wires, an original, filmed play written and directed by Laura Ferri that explores the impact of the Japanese incarceration on young people in Seattle. Two of the central characters are based on Louise Tsuboi Kashino and Patsy McInery Love, lifelong friends who attended Capitol Hill’s Broadway High School. Meticulously researched and drawn from interviews and primary sources, the play explores the racism and war hysteria that led to this devastating time in history. For this presentation, Tamara will focus on the local aspects of the play and how some of the research translated into individual scenes. Attendees will be given a link to access the full play later on their own.
Following the presentation, we will share updates on what we’ve been up to as an organization, including our recent leadership transition, highlights from our work in 2021, and plans and needs for 2022.
Though we will have some official membership business, such as voting in the board for the upcoming year, all are welcome, whether members or not.
