Folder from 1966-1968 from a City Council representative from the African-American neighborhood of Morningside Park, Inglewood California (Los Angeles County)

An interesting group of material from a neighborhood that was one of the most measuredly successful (in median income, education, lack of crime, etc.) mainly African-American neighborhoods in Los Angeles County. A 2014 article in Ebony Magazine, "Goodbye, Morningside Park," gives an account of the neighborhood and its decilne in the 2010s thanks to white realtors and developers interested in "gentrification," which the author suggests was a euphemism for replacing African-Americans with Caucasians.
