Crossing the Columbia with York 

At 3 PM on Sunday, November 12 at Tolovana Hall, Gideon For-Mukwai shares the oft-untold story of York, the lone slave on the Lewis and Clark expedition.

During the expedition, York, who was owned by the family of William Clark, experienced measures of both freedom and respect. 

He was permitted to carry a gun and he was granted a voting interest in the party. As blacks would not be allowed to vote until the passage of the 15th Amendment some six decades later, York may have been the first black man to ever be granted a vote in America.

York, who grew up alongside Clark and referred to as his "manservant," was an integral member of the expedition. York as was an accomplished hunter, renown for his strength and one the few party members who could swim. Both York's physicality and the color of his skin helped establish relations with Native American tribes met along the way.

And yet, after his devoted, honorable and indispensable service, York was denied what he most desired.

For the ending--which includes an astounding, tragic twist--join "story warrior" Gideon For-Mukwai and the Tolovana Arts Colony on November 12th at3 PMM for this free storytelling event, located at Tolovana Hall in Cannon Beach. (Tolovana Hall is located at 3779 S. Hemlock.)
