CELEBRATING BLACK HISTORY MONTH WITH NOTABLE ANGELENOS

These industrious, courageous men and women left their homes in the South to seek better-paying jobs and new opportunities. If you are of African-American descent, it is quite possible that the reason you live in the greater Los Angeles metropolitan area is because a relative who was a brave risk-taker decided to stake out a new life in California.
