LA Commons will host the second annual Found LA: Festival of Neighborhoods. This year’s theme “Discovering the Secret Heart of Los Angeles” invites participants to move beyond historic sites and surface structures to showcase the significance that lies rooted in storefronts, shops, and gathering places in their communities. Supporting local community leaders in sharing what ties them to their neighborhoods.
FESTIVAL OPENER: Central Ave with Councilwoman Jan Perry 9th District
South Central Ave is in a celebrated historic core of Los Angeles. In its glory it was the center of the west coast jazz scene, a 1940's black Hollywood haven, and the center of NAACP conventions and other African American social movements of the time.
Councilwoman Jan Perry has been working diligently to revitalize the area, and now construction has finally started at the Dunbar Hotel and the adjacent Club Alabam!
Come for a early morning stroll with Councilwoman Jan Perry to learn about the past of this historic street and to see what the future holds with new efforts for revitalization.
Tour Info: Please arrive promptly.
Meeting: Dunbar Hotel 4225 S Central Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90011
