Warren Pope: Blood Lines Time Lines Red Lines
May 31, 2019 – September 29, 2019
This exhibition explores the historical and current realities of redlining through the minimalist artwork of local artist Warren Pope.
This dynamic, interactive exhibition takes visitors on a multi-faceted journey through time, exploring the history, culture, and art of the region’s African American community. Beginning with the Transatlantic Slave Trade, the chronological timeline encompasses three centuries of challenges and opportunities that were experienced by people who settled in the Pacific Northwest and called it home.
The Journey Gallery will also feature a display entitled: Legacies of Love in Leadership: Community Educators and Activists

Two Seattle Icons: Bertha Pitts Campbell and Mona Humphries Bailey
Though they grew up in different eras, different states, and were from different generations, Bertha Pitts Campbell and Mona Humphries Bailey were driven by the same vision and ideals. These two women also shared many characteristics. Both women were bold, community-oriented activists, and political risk-takers. One founded Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. in 1913 and the other led the organization sixty-six years later. Their worlds would come together here in Seattle and the Founder of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc, Bertha Pitts Campbell and the 17th National President of the sorority, Mona Humphries Bailey continued impacting local, national and international communities.
