We're Asking Black Angelenos, New And LA-Born, To Share Their Experiences
The theme of our Black History Month coverage this year is, “What does it mean to be Black in L.A.?”
We want to hear from our community. Recount a personal experience, tell us a story or just share your thoughts. We’ve also asked several of our Black staffers to reflect on this and contribute to the project. We’ll begin publishing these reflections Feb. 1 through the end of the month.
- Racism 101: Facilitating Deeper Conversations On Race
- Race In LA: How Does Your Race Or Ethnicity Shape Your Life?
The first installment of our The 8 Percent project began exploring the inextricable ties between L.A. and its Black residents — how Black migration, community and culture have shaped and changed L.A. For Black History Month, we’re homing in on a more specific experience — yours. Tell us: What does it mean to you to be Black in L.A.?
