African-American Heritage Museum and Cultural Center UPDATE #3 (1998):
“The Youth Action Committee Takes Control Of The Last Black Institution
In Seattle!”

As predicted, last night’s meeting at SVI was indeed turbulent. The
uncle toms brought in 3 uniformed Seattle Police officers, along with
East Precinct Lt. Harry Bailey (local “Weed and Seed director and 32nd
degree freemason).

So far, all the communiques I’ve sent out have been very long (and I
apologize to those who weren’t trying to read all of that), but I felt
it was important in order for those who weren’t there, particularly
those outside of Seattle, to have a clear picture of what’s going on;
thus all the details. I’ll try to be brief with this one and anyone have
questions please feel free to email me, write, or call the museum at
206-320-9321 for more info. Again, let me also offer everyone the
opportunity to review the relevant documents for themselves, send us $2
for postage and we’ll send you copies of everything we have.

To begin with, none of the grassroots concerns were on the agenda that
Bob and Co. prepared. In addition, the committee reports were fabricated
due to the fact that the only committees for the museum that have been
meeting regularly at the museum offices are the Youth Action Committee
and African International Affairs Committee. Omari Tahir, founder of the
museum/cultural center started the meeting with the complete history up
to the illegal activities of Bob Flowers, Bob Luciano, Pat Chandler, and
Harolynn Bobis (and others). He cited the relevant Revised Codes of
Washington and told the crowd of 100 or so what else the ‘toms have been
doing.
