MAKING A DIFFERENCE:

The Bumpy Road toward Civil Rights, Social Justice and Equality

The 26th Annual Living History Tour
Angelus Rosedale Cemetery
Saturday, September 24
Tours begin from 9 a.m. until Noon

History Comes Alive at the landmark Angelus Rosedale Cemetery on Saturday, September 24,  as we explore the tumultuous journey in this nation toward equal rights for all, regardless of race, gender, or religion.  At this year’s Living History Tour, visitors will “meet” historic personages whose life stories reflect the fight for a variety of civil rights, including the right to live wherever one wishes, to vote, to equal treatment, and to obtain social freedom.

Actors, in costume and at graveside with set vignettes, will give first-person portrayals of some of the people who are buried here, including a well-known suffragette who gave speeches across the state; a developer who established a resort town nicknamed the “Black Palm Springs;” a Japanese-American whose family was uprooted in 1942 and sent to a relocation camp, along with a lawyer who lobbied against these internments; one of the original elders of the oldest black church in Los Angeles; and one of the original owners of the Dunbar Hotel on Central Avenue.
