This week, the class will take a tour of Leimert Park Village, the historical location for Black Los Angeles. During the tour we will visit Eso Won Books. Some of the students mentioned they have never visited a Black-owned bookstore. This will be their opportunity to observe the vastness of books written by Black authors. We will also go over techniques for receiving A’s on tests and exams in school, as well as how to conduct research. We will also touch on the recent the Emmet Till controversy and the Trayvon Martin controversy.
Please note: Next week’s class (3 August) will be conducted at the Ladera Community Center, same time 10 a.m. til Noon. Students will be given a notice with the address as a reminder to give to parents.
Here it is in case you misplace it:
Yvonne Burke Ladera Community Center
