On Saturday, June 29 writers and poets will recognize and honor our 2019 Seattle Living Legacies:  Storme Webber, Georgia MCdade, and Mary Ann Moorman with written work and readings. The inaugural celebration will focus on active and instrumental ways each nominee has raised the bar and who live exemplary lives that change and impact multiple people in many ways. The reading and celebration will take place after the nominees are interviewed about being a Living Legacy by Seattle Civic Poet Anastacia-Renee. 

Mary Ann Moorman (Seattle’s Aunt Mama Storytable) is being honored for her storytelling, artistic, multicultural commitment to diversity and personal social change agent contributions to Seattle communities (and beyond), which have been historical and monumental.

Storme Webber’s cultural, artistic, humanitarian, philanthropic and interdisciplinary work for and about-marginalized voices are only a few of the contributions she has made to Seattle communities (and beyond). Over the years, her grassroots’ work with Voices Rising and pivotal public readings and programming have been historical, her/storical and monumental.

Georgia McDade is being honored for her work as the charter member for the African American-American Alliance Writers as well as being a trailblazer and role model as the first African American woman to earn a Ph. D. in English from the University of Washington. In addition she has made numerous creative, humanitarian, philothrapical and social justice contributions to Seattle communities (and beyond).
