Community Conversations: Stories from Our South LA to be held Aug. 25

With group events and public gatherings currently on hold, it’s more important than ever to find new ways to stay connected. That’s why Metro began a series of “Community Conversations,” which are online meetings hosted by community leaders to help us learn the histories, art, activism and cultural assets of the neighborhoods that shape Los Angeles County.

The first two conversations were held earlier this summer, and you can watch the recordings here. The next conversation — Histories, Triumphs, and Challenges: Stories from Our South LA — will take place from noon to 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 25.

The featured panelists are:

  • Nourbese Flint, Program Manager at Black Women for Wellness and Director of Black Women for Wellness Action Project
  • Corey Matthews, Chief Operating Officer at Community Coalition
  • Dr. Michael J. Fisher, Sr., Pastor-Teacher at Greater Zion Church Family

They will be discussing South LA and how the region blossomed into an African American cultural hub, and share how past and present challenges have inspired the community to forge a path forward.

The conversation is free to join! Make sure to RSVP in order to receive the virtual meeting link and call in information.
