The Museum of History & Industry in Seattle will hold a free program on the citizen activists who opposed plans to build a dense network of freeways in and around the city from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Sept. 19 at 860 Terry Ave N.
In the late 1960s and early 70s, a coalition of activists, representing communities from Mount Baker to Lake City and groups as diverse as the Citizens Planning Council and the Black Panthers, joined in opposition to proposed freeway projects. They succeeded in halting two major freeways and downsizing a third, saving parks, shoreline and thousands of homes and businesses.
Information is at mohai.org under events. The program is part of the History Cafe series.
