Evolution of View Park: Making Sense of Gentrification


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

Inspired by the exhibition Adler Guerrier: Conditions and Forms for blck Longevity, come for lively conversations about Los Angeles’s View Park, one of the largest historically African American enclaves in the United States. The April 19 program focuses on the beginnings of View Park, a community developed between the 1920s and 1950s, and it looks at how the neighborhood changed dramatically after the landmark 1948 Supreme Court ruling that declared racial covenants unconstitutional. The May 10 and June 28 meetings explore the evolution of the neighborhood from its beginnings to today, including its controversial inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places. The sessions are led by Karen Mack with LA Commons.
