The ninth installment of our ongoing series exploring issues of race and space in Los Angeles focuses on community efforts to fight for greater control of neighborhoods before and in the aftermath of the 1992 civil unrest. It will feature a series of grassroots films produced by Michael Zinzun, one of the founders of the Coalition Against Police Abuse (CAPA). CAPA linked rising poverty and unemployment with the growth of police forces and expansion of California’s prison system, a strategy they viewed as a means to contain poor communities of color. Through organizing and mobilizing communities, CAPA offered an alternative strategy to transform inner city neighborhoods from spaces targeted for control to spaces of empowerment.

Introduction and discussion by Yusef Omowale and Michele Welsing of The Southern California Library who also curated tonight's event. The Southern California Library documents and makes accessible histories of struggles that challenge racism and other systems of oppression so we can all imagine and sustain possibilities for freedom. socallib.org

Doors 7:30 PM. FREE EVENT! EVERYONE WELCOME!

This project was made possible with support from California Humanities, a non-profit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Visit calhum.org.
