In Honor of Black History Month

by Crystal Shaw on February 08, 2017

It's Black History Month - and although Liberty Hill celebrates and honors the accomplishments and supports the actions, movements and events of Black-led social justice throughout the year, this month we'd like to highlight the Black-led organizing that has been happening in Los Angeles since Liberty Hill's inception.

We took a look at just the first 20 years of Liberty Hill’s grantmaking to get a snapshot of that period of Black-led organizing in L.A. It’s important to note the innovative and grassroots means by which community-based organizations have approached empowering and energizing Los Angeles’ Black community. The history of community organizing here is a pastiche of groups, movements, and events—each one playing a unique role in connecting Black Angelenos to each other and to the larger city fabric.

Liberty Hill currently supports The Los Angeles Black Worker CenterStrategic Concepts in Organizing and Policy Education, a New Way of LifeDignity and Power Now and our own Brothers Sons Selves coalition - organizations and campaigns pushing the the needle forward on issues affecting the Black community.
