Taking Back the Boulevard

Date: March 19, 2019

Time: 7:00pm

Location: The Center for the Arts Eagle Rock, 2225 Colorado Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90041

Our guest in March for our special free public meeting is professor Jan Lin from Occidental College. Lin has observed Eagle Rocks revitalization efforts and will place them in context with overall trends in Northeast Los Angeles.

“Lin explores the promises and conflicts faced by public figures, artists, and leaders of Northeast Los Angeles as they enliven and defend their neighborhoods. Focusing especially on the cultural scene of Northeast Los Angeles, Lin shows how these gentrifying communities help satisfy a white middle-class consumer demand for authentic experiences of “living on the edge and a spirit of cultural rebellion.”
