FHI: Re: Sugar Hill

(In) the early 1940s successful African-American entertainers moved into West Adams Heights

(in Los Angeles) and dubbed it “Sugar Hill.” But Whites opposed the integration of West Adams. Among the

famous residents of West Adams Heights/Sugar Hill was actresses Louise Beavers, Hattie McDaniel (the first

African-American to win a Oscar-Gone With The Wind), Earl Grant (jazz organist), and Ray Charles & Lena Horne (below). Their efforts were rewarded in 1948 when the United States Supreme Court declared racial restrictions housing unconstitutional.

Soon West Adams was the place for wealthy African-Americans who quickly became the dominant group. The first African-American to run for city council was Courtland G. Mitchell who lived in West Adams Heights/Sugar Hill at

2048 South Oxford Avenue.

The late 1950s/early 1960s the Santa Monica Freeway cut through part of West Adams. The Freeway also divided West Adams Heights/ Sugar Hill. Some of our most significant home were lost to the freeway project and the area began to decline through the 1970s.

The house below still exists. Sugar Hill is now most associated with the successful rap label and the Sugar Hill Gang.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
