Millwood Presbyterian Church will continue its speaker series on human rights with a talk by Coeur d'Alene resident Tony Stewart tonight at 7 p.m. in the church, located at 3223 N. Marguerite Road. He plans to speak on racism in the Northwest.

Stewart was a founding member of the Kootenai County Task Force on Human Relations in 1981, when a local white supremacist group was going strong. He was awarded the National Education Association's 2010 H. Councill Trenholm Memorial Civil Rights Award and the 2008 Carl Maxey Racial Justice Award from the Spokane YMCA.

The first 125 people to arrive at 6 p.m. can have an authentic Mexican taco dinner provided by Taco Los Panchos and Taco Works, both businesses in Coeur d'Alene that have recently been the target of racist demonstrations. The suggested donation for the dinner is $6; admission to the talk is free.
