"In early February 2021, King County Metro Transit in collaboration with the City of Shoreline installed a photomural in the bus shelter at N 175th Street and Meridian Avenue North to honor the legacy of Civil Rights leader and Shoreline resident Edwin T. Pratt. Miriam Pratt, the daughter of Edwin and Bettye Pratt, joins Terry White, the General Manager of King County Metro, Will Hall, City of Shoreline Mayor, and Rod Dembowski, King County Councilmember, in sharing their thoughts on Edwin Pratt's legacy and the importance of the mural. This video, produced by Ken Winnick at VisualCognetics and edited by Toné Dupree, includes excerpts from the virtual shelter dedication on February 23."
