It’s Africa Day here at Word on the Street.

First stop is a ribbon-cutting ceremony at Tacoma Art Place. The cooperative at South 11th Street and Martin Luther King was inspired by a trip to Mali. "The goal," a release says, "is to increase access to art, creativity by everyday people and visitors to Tacoma’s revitalized Hilltop neighborhood." It opens to the public tomorrow.

After that, it’s back to the newsroom for high school journalism day. I’m stretching for an idea about how to link this to my previous assertion that this is Africa Day, so I’ll go with the explanation that I’ll be talking about online journalism, and my first blogging took place when I was living in Cape Town, South Africa.

This afternoon, I’ll be on campus at the University of Puget Sound to listen to two refugees from the genocide in Darfur speak.

I’ll bring you updates throughout the day.
