Forgotten Founders: The Hidden African Ancestry of LA In February 2016, El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument (El Pueblo) will open Forgotten Founders: The Hidden African Ancestry of L.A.

at the historic Pico House in downtown Los Angeles, just miles away from the original location of the first Los Angeles Pueblo. During its one month installment, this collaborative exhibit will trace the role of individuals of African descent in the founding of Los Angeles. While emphasizing the diverse racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds of the forty-four pobladores who founded the pueblo on the edge of the Los Angeles River in 1781, the exhibit will also trace the connections between this specific event and the broader history of communities of African descent in Mexico and the American West.
