Los Angeles Controller Ron Galperin released a map on Thursday that identifies and provides history about 28 Los Angeles landmarks with important ties to the black community.

The map, which was released in honor of African American Heritage Month, includes sites like the Theme Building at LAX, designed in large part by African American architect Paul Revere Williams; the Gilbert Lindsay Residence, in honor of the first African American elected to the L.A. City Council; and the Lincoln Theatre, which was once dubbed the “West Coast Apollo.”
