Seattle’s most diverse community has a story to share with the world, a narrative of resistance, resilience, hope, tragedy, triumph, and passion. It’s a story that can only be told by an area where Tagalog, and Tigrinya can flow as fluently from corner store door steps as English. Explore in this collection experiences as varied and unique as the people who grace its streets, but coalescing in one wide-ranging story: The People of South Seattle.

Seattle has long been considered a center of progressive thought and action. And while that is largely true, like any other growing city it has wrestled with familiar demons: racism, class struggles, economic opportunism, sexism, and more. But since the 2016 election, the city has emerged as a central staging ground for the resistance against the new administration, its policies, and the rising wave of the far right.

Amid such turbulent times, we must not let injustice become the new status quo. We must question, criticize, and challenge the socio-political structures in place, and seek out solutions and changes that represent all Americans, not just a privileged and wealthy few. The diverse voices of the writers, activists and journalists in Fly To The Assemblies explore the redoubled challenges facing citizens today.

Bursting with vibrancy, pulsing with culture, and beaming with diversity Seattle’s southern region is unlike any other in the world. With its wide array of ethnicities, the “south end” of Seattle is home to an extraordinary assortment of art, poetry, and literature influenced by its array of residents who spring from radically diverse walks of life. From tales of bus rides down city corridors chronicling an area in the midst of transformation, to the rekindling of love thought lost, to the struggles of life in a world that has seemingly left you behind, to the triumphs experienced by a community reliant primarily upon itself the stories told from the area are as rich as the people doing the telling. This collection of works from the area provides a taste of the creativity found in the living “American Mosaic” known as South Seattle, or as we like to call it, the most eclectic place on earth.
