Watts recently commemorated the 50th anniversary of the 1965 Rebellion.
During the commemoration, the Watts Reimagined team, which includes Grant Housing & Economic Development Corporation, the Natural Resources Defense Council Urban Solutions Program and Kounkuey Design Initiative, brought people together in an abandoned lot on 103rd Street and Central Avenue.
During the event Watts residents came together for entertainment and healthy living activities like Zumba and food cooking demonstration.
Though the 50th anniversary events are winding down, the Watts Reimagined team hopes to keep these community building activities alive and continue creating impactful changes throughout the area.
