Dominique Christina is a poet, activist, educator, mother and African American. She spoke to two audiences in Spokane. On the Saranac rooftop she spoke to a predominantly young feminist crowd. The next evening she spoke at Gonzaga University to young creative writing students and local writers. When organizations bring talented and gifted speakers to town who bring messages of interest to a Black audience there appears to be a disconnect. Either we don’t get the message or we don’t give a damn about the message. Both engagements were free to the public. Gonzaga University has a whole program this fall around hate.

I have never Interviewed the owners but I have visited 2 to 3 times per week for many years. This is where the First Thursday Coffee group meets. I would
not like to put words in the owner’s mouth. From what I have seen and felt these local people support community building. I like the idea of unsolicited
public support. I just want to tell my friends about good folks in our community.
