Down with Stereotypes! Conversations with Waitresses and Native Americans
Alison Owings, author of Hey, Waitress! The USA from the Other Side of the Tray and the forthcoming Indian Voices / Listening to Native Americans, will read excerpts from both works. This evening will feature the tale of Beulah Compton, a waitress union leader in Seattle in the 1940's and 1950's, and Tom Phillips (Kiowa), a powwow emcee who also works as a drug counselor at the Friendship House American Indian Healing Center -- just blocks away from Modern Times.
LaborFest discounted copies of Hey, Waitress! will be available for purchase.
