Help West Seattle Little League get Bar-S ready
Mar 9 @ 5:15 pm – 6:15 pm

West Seattle Little League needs your help:

We need your help at Bar-S to get the fields ready for the season. WSLL is 100% volunteer-run and field maintenance is where we currently have the most need. The fields have not been used since 2019 and need a lot of work. Grab your mask, rakes, weed pullers, weed pullers, and old clothes. Volunteers with trucks are also appreciated to help move dirt. Grab the whole family and come on down and help WSLL get kids back on the field.

This entire upcoming week we invite you to come down for just one hour between 5:15 – 6:15 to help get the grass out of the infield. We will also have other group sessions from 9 am to noon on March 14th and March 20th. If you can volunteer during another time, reach out to Andrew at fields@westseattlelittleleague.com and let him know how you can help. Inclement weather changes.

Words, Writers and Southwest Stories: T. Andrew Wahl: “Comic Book Reality: Superheroes and the Power of Representation” @ Online (see listing)
Mar 11 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

‘Words, Writers & SouthWest Stories,’ a historically-based speaker series of the Southwest Seattle Historical Society, is excited to announce that it is hosting T. Andrew Wahl for a live Zoom presentation on Thursday, March 11 at 6:00 PM. Wahl will deliver a presentation entitled, “Comic Book Reality: Superheroes and the Power of Representation.” Registration is required. Please register HERE.

Since their debut in the 1930s, comic books have been a regular part of our pop-culture landscape. While often dismissed as escapist entertainment, these pulp treasures also provide a fascinating lens through which to view our nation’s past, present and potential future.

In this interactive presentation, journalist and educator T. Andrew Wahl explores how everything from social movements to business concerns to changing demographics have shaped the reality seen in the pages of comics. Drawing from comics including Black Panther, Wonder Woman, Captain America, and others, Wahl shows how four-color heroes aren’t merely confined to paper—they shape the world we live in.

T. Andrew Wahl is a journalist who has worked as an editor and editorial cartoonist. Wahl is a lifelong comic book aficionado, focusing on the Bronze Age (1975-85) of the American comic book. Wahl studied comic-books as a part of his MA in the humanities at Fort Hays State University. He currently teaches journalism at Everett Community College.

This presentation is part of the Humanities Washington Speakers Bureau. The Southwest Seattle Historical Society is grateful for the support of Humanities Washington and to our partners at the Seattle Public Library.

This series is open to hosting any author or speaker addressing historical issues relating to the Puget Sound/Duwamish Peninsula and/or the general public. Additional information on future presentations can be obtained by contacting Dora-Faye Hendricks, Chair, ‘Words, Writers & SouthWest Stories’ by phone at 206-290-8315 or by e-mail at Dora-Faye@comcast.net.

‘Words, Writers & Southwest Stories,’ a historically-based speaker series of the Southwest Seattle Historical Society, is offered in partnership with The Southwest Seattle Historical Society and The Seattle Public Library.

Jourdan Imani Keith Presents “Womxn & Whales First, Poetry In A Climate Of Change” @ Online (see listing)
Mar 21 @ 4:00 pm – 5:10 pm

Join Seattle Civic Poet Jourdan Imani Keith and six other poets who will read work that shows how protecting endangered womxn will protect endangered whales. Registration required. Click here to register.

Celebrate World Poetry Day with seven Black, Indigenous, Womxn of Color reading original poetry that explores the intersectionality of womxn’s health, healing, and the endangered Orca whales of the Salish Sea. Seattle Civic Poet Jourdan Imani Keith says, “As Black Indigenous Womxn of Color in Seattle, we share the urban wilderness of the Salish Sea with the endangered Killer Whales. Our bodies face the same cumulative risks of environmental toxins and the harms of objectification, yet we both survive and are revived by the cumulative benefits of matrilineal wisdom, tradition and community. Our brilliance and wellness is entwined with the need for healthy and protected social and natural ecosystems.”

Join Keith, along with 6 other local poets, who will perform original pantoums developed through workshops facilitated by Keith over the last few months as part of her larger project, Womxn & Whales First, Poetry in a Climate of Change. After the reading, Keith and the other poets will hold a conversation with the digital audience.

The event is presented in partnership with The Seattle Public Library Foundation, the Office of Arts & Culture, and Seattle City of Literature. This event is supported by the Gary and Connie Kunis Foundation. Thanks to media sponsor The Seattle Times.

We can provide accommodations for people with disabilities at Library events. Please contact leap@spl.org at least seven days before the event to request accommodations. Captions are available for all recorded Library programs.

Beyond the Basics: A Westside Baby Virtual Gathering @ online
Mar 25 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm

Meeting the basic needs of children is more than just the diaper or car seat that we distribute. These items represent dignity, freedom and joy for the child, and their entire family. For 20 years, you have come alongside WestSide Baby to work collectively in support of the belief that every child deserves to have their most basic needs met.

And yet, we know we are only meeting a fraction of the growing need.

In order to achieve our bold vision where each child is a happy, healthy, and resilient member of our community, we must go Beyond the Basics.

Will you be part of this journey with us?
