From the 1920s to the 1950s, Central Avenue was the hub of West Coast jazz. Famous the world over, “The Avenue,” as it was lovingly called, was a must-visit destination for jazz lovers in Los Angeles. Join us for a series of conversations about Central Avenue and its history and eventual decline. The first program focuses on the beginnings of Central Avenue as a downtown gathering place for Los Angeles’s black residents. Sessions two and three look at the jazz scene and how Central Avenue was pivotal to the Civil Rights Movement. Presented in partnership with CAAM’s History Council and led by Robert Lee Johnson, author of «Notable Southern Californians in Black History.»
