History of African American Film on display at City Hall this month

In honor of African American Heritage Month, Los Angeles City Council President Herb J. Wesson, Jr. presents an art exhibit of photos, film posters, television memorabilia and more in the Bridge Gallery on the third floor of LA City Hall.

Titled “Blacks In Cinema,” the exhibit features historic film poster collections from Ron Finley and the PAFF film festival, as well as a look at 70 TV shows that primarily featured an African American cast, such as Soul Train, the Flip Wilson Show, Sanford & Son, Good Times, and The Jeffersons.

The exhibit is open to the public and will remain on view for the entire month of February during regular weekday business hours. Admission is free; enter City Hall through the public entrance at 200 N Main Street; obtain a Visitor Pass from security; and ask for directions to the art gallery on the 3rd floor bridge.

Need parking for your visit? Please call Council President Wesson’s office at (213) 473-7010 and tell them you want to tour the 2019 AAHM art exhibit at City Hall.
