Seattle People of Color Salon
February Meeting — 2.18.2012

C. Davida Ingram and Natasha Marin (Tashi Ko) wanted their Facebook friendship to beome a "real life connection" ... a couple emails later and the get-together was all set up. Tashi being the girl she is, figured why not kill a few birds with one stone and invited addition Facebook friends. Likewise, Davida additional guests. It wasn't long till Seattle People of Color Salon was born.

Salons, for generations have been organized by women who are leaders in the community to expand circles, create dialogues, and promote positive change. SPoCS is a safe-space for People of Color to gather and exchange ideas.

Richard Sleeping

An hour later I returned to find Richard awake. I took a chance and politely approached informing him I took his photo while resting. I was hoping to spend some time with him and get to know his story. 

"Both of my parents were herions addicts. So growing up in Montana, made my life just a little bit tougher." — Richard 

At the age of 19, Richard packed him few belongings, and snuck on back of a train. He traveled along side a hobo who could perform simple magic ticks and illusions. "Unfortunately so much time has passed I can't remember his name. He was a gentle kinda o' guy though."

Secret Messages, a man scribbling furiously on a piece of paper.
