Join Historians Christopher Jimenez y West, Ph.D., Hillary Jenks, Ph.D. and Anthony Macias, Ph.D. in a discussion about the Bronzeville period on Saturday, June 22, 2.00 p.m. at the Downtown Independent Theatre (251 Main Street, Los Angeles, 90012).

Project Bronzeville is a combination of fine art, theater, a panel discussion and music events. Together this programming commemorates, the brief, but vibrant part of Los Angeles history when Japanese Americans were forced out of their homes and businesses in Little Tokyo during WWII and African American families from the south moved into these vacant spaces and renamed the neighborhood “Bronzeville.”

LA ArtCore, The Robey Theatre Company and Kathie Foley-Meyer are the multiple event and venue location sponsors. For more information and details about the art, theater, and music programming of “Project Bronzeville,” please visit the Project Bronzeville website here.
