Jim Houston, left, and Russ Chick play dominoes during a Juneteenth, a commemoration of the end of slavery in the United States, at Pratt Park in Seattle’s Central District. Houston talked about how the Ku Klux Klan ran his father out of Louisiana when he was young. Their family eventually moved to Bremerton, Wash., where his Houston’s uncle worked in the Navy. He said that Juneteenth is about coming together. “It’s not about grudges, it’s about love, ” Houston said.
