Guest Speaker: Willie Stewart

On May 9, 2022, the St. Mark’s Anti-Racism Alliance invited Willie Stewart of Tacoma to talk with us about our community history. A longtime public school educator, Mr. Stewart became the first black school principal in Tacoma history when he took on the role at Lincoln High School in 1970. Over the years, he has continued to be a leader and practitioner of racial reconciliation in our city. He was awarded the Greater Tacoma Peace Prize in 2019.
