From its beginnings in Seattle nearly fifty years ago, El Centro de la Raza has been translated as “The Center for People of All Races.” In Seattle’s El Centro de la Raza: Dr. King’s Living Laboratory, Bruce E. Johansen, with valuable aid from Estela Ortega, executive director, and Miguel Maestas, Housing and Development director at El Centro, explores how the center has become part of a nationally significant work in progress on human rights and relations based on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s concept of a “Beloved Community” that crosses all ethnic, racial, and other social boundaries. Johansen’s examination of the history of the center highlights its mission to consciously provide intercultural communication and cooperation as an interracial bridge, uniting people on both a small and a large scale, from neighborhood communities to international relations. Scholars of Latin American studies, race studies, international relations, sociology, and communication will find this book especially useful.

When you think about restaurants in Seattle, a few notable options immediately come to mind. Many will think of smoked salmon and fresh seafood, others might think of the great Thai, Japanese, Vietnamese and Chinese influences in the city. And all those folks would be right! But delving deeper into the culinary catacombs of Seattle, one discovers amazing deep dish pizza, giant sloppy (and delicious) burgers, textbook fried chicken, tantalizing biscuits and even the Seattle hot dog made with grilled onions, jalapenos and cream cheese. Whether sampling fresh ingredients at the Pike Place Market or getting a bowl of noodles at a hole-in-the-wall shop, the Seattle food scene will satisfy your cravings each and every day of the week. Seattle, founded in 1851 as a logging and fishing town, has been home to farm-to-table techniques ever since. And that tradition carries on today - whether you're talking Taichi Kitamura's sushi, Edouardo Jordan's soul food or Renee Erickson's wood-fire oven-cooked veggies. And while this book is an expertly written guide to what’s possible in the Emerald City, sometimes it is the unknown shops you discover along your path that forever stick with you - whether it’s a brand new food truck or a $30 plate of heavenly pasta. But in the meantime, let Unique Eats and Eateries of Seattle be your food guide. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; line-height: 20.0px; font: 14.7px Arial; color: #000000; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; line-height: 20.0px; font: 14.7px Arial; color: #000000; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000; min-height: 16.0px} p.p3 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; line-height: 17.0px; font: 14.7px Arial; color: #000000; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000} span.s1 {font-kerning: none}

 From Seattle’s earliest days as a Gold Rush boomtown to its celebration of the future during the 1962 World’s Fair, local artists have created public art installations—statuary, reliefs and other sculpture—that have become familiar features of the city’s landscape. This comprehensive study of 12 Seattle sculptors and their works examines the motivations of the artists and their benefactors, the development of the city’s public art policy, and the political forces behind the pieces that are now part of the city’s rich history. Biographical details and historical perspective are provided for such artists as Lorado Taft, Alice Robertson Carr, John Carl Ely, Max P. Nielsen, August Werner and James FitzGerald.
