From the Watts Rebellion to George Floyd, South LA Charts a New Path Toward Racial Justice

In an op-ed for Next City, Tunua Thrash-Ntuk, ED of LISC LA, and Hanna Love of the Brookings Institution trace the historical roots of community self-determination in South Los Angeles and argue that it's high time for public and private sector leaders to support the model for investment these activists have forged.
