Discover African American Culture in Los Angeles

Discover Los Angeles

Los Angeles is one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the world. Beginning with LA’s founding in 1781, the African American presence has grown and flourished, greatly influencing not only the city of Los Angeles, but making a tremendous impact on the rest of the country and around the world. It’s no coincidence that the two years President Barack Obama spent at LA’s Occidental College (1979-1981) played a major role in determining his future in politics.

One of the best ways to experience African American culture and heritage in Los Angeles is during Black History Month, which takes place every February. Hosted by various cultural institutions throughout the city, the month-long celebration includes events at the California African-American Museum in Exposition Park and the annual Pan African Film & Art Festival. The following guide will help you explore L.A.’s African American culture during Black History Month and throughout the year. Day One covers South LA and Downtown; Day Two features the Beach Cities; and Day Three takes you to the Westside.

Born on Jan. 8, 1935, Elvis Aaron Presley was one of the greatest cultural icons of the 20th century, known to millions of fans around the world as “the King of Rock and Roll,” or simply, “the King.” Elvis was a transformative music figure who fused country, rhythm and blues, and elements of pop and gospel into what became the foundation of rock and roll. His extraordinary stage presence broke barriers, set the standard for all who followed, and galvanized an entire generation of youth culture. In terms of pure numbers, Elvis is unmatched - according to the Guinness Book of World Records, Elvis is the best-selling solo artist of all time, with 1 billion sales worldwide (129.5 million in the U.S.). He’s inspired a legion of impersonators, and pretenders to his throne come and go. But Elvis Presley will always be the King. 

Elvis fans can explore his legacy throughout LA, from a historic recording studio to his favorite restaurants, hotels, and even a spiritual sanctuary near the Pacific Ocean. Read on and discover Elvis Presley’s Los Angeles.
