Black Los Angeles symposium

Scholars, community leaders and other experts gathered for a series of panel discussions on the history, culture, politics and current state of the Los Angeles African American community. The event was part of a symposium sponsored by UCLA's Ralph J. Bunche Center for African American Studies. The event spotlighted the recently released book "Black Los Angeles: American Dreams and Racial Realities," which was co-edited by Bunche Center director Darnell Hunt and assistant director Ana-Christina Ramón and features essays by more than two dozen scholars. The book is the culmination of eight years of research the center conducted on African American communities in the region.
