Unsettled Territory | El Centro de la Raza

Season 1 | Episode 2

In 1972, a group of bold, committed activists peacefully occupied an abandoned elementary school and established a community center for minorities within its walls. Fifty years later, Seattle’s El Centro de la Raza is living proof of how activism can build and shape a community, continuing to bring people of all backgrounds together to shape and strengthen the city for the better. Unsettled Territory celebrates the often untold, yet evocative, moments that have helped to shape Seattle’s cultural heritage. We invite you to come and explore. #UnsettledTerritory
