This Third Thursday event is held in conjunction with the Legacy Washington Exhibit Korea 65: The Forgotten War Remembered that is at the Karshner Center until mid-January. Each year the Secretary of State’s office creates an exhibit based on an aspect of Washington State History and features stories of people and events that are important to the State. Legacy Washington uses sources from the Washington State Library, Washington State Archives and heritage organizations to document “extraordinary stories” in Washington history. This exhibit tells stories about the Korean War from many lenses. One story featured in this exhibit is that of Patsy Suhr O’Connell, the founder of the Asia Pacific Cultural Center in Tacoma.
