Today is the last day of Black History Month, I celebrate BH 365 Black!
This story of the history of LA is one that I am familiar with.
However, many folks are not, even Angelenos!
Throughout the course of history, from Egypt to Los Angeles, the powers that be have done and do whatever they can to remain exactly that, “The powers that be.”
White-washing, erasing, mis-educating, gentrification and straight jacking of Black Culture which feeds the entire world is nothing new.
The fact that over half of the founders of Los Angeles were of Afro-Mexican descent proves we need to unite more and fight more for our well-deserved place in LA and beyond.
That being said, know we are powerful and resilient beyond measure.
