In honor of African American Heritage Month, L.A. Controller Ron Galperin released a new and unique online map of public sites and resources that highlight the City of Los Angeles’ strong African American history. The map allows users to explore places of worship, museums, notable residences, and other historically and culturally important public landmarks and spaces throughout the City that underscore the contributions of the African American community. 

“African American Heritage Across Los Angeles” is part of Galperin’s mission to use mapping, data and innovative strategies to promote civic engagement and connect the public with a wider range of City resources and services.There is also information on the current number of African American City workers and elected officials in an infographic released with the map.
