Los Angeles- That’s a wrap! This is true as it relates to the first weekend of the Pan African Film and Arts Festival. The festival is currently underway at the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza and the adjacent Cinemark RAVE Theatres.
A large diverse audience has been in attendance since the festival commenced on Thursday, February 7th. Everyone agrees that the 27th Annual Pan African Film and Arts Festival is off to a rousing start. The festival got underway with an awesome documentary film about iconic singer Aretha Franklin entitled “Amazing Grace.”
My enjoyment of the festival began with a short film entitled “Colors of Sankofa.” A successful CEO is forced to revisit scars from her past while interviewing candidates for a new second-in-command position. Bullying and identity issues were brought up in the film.

Central Avenue Jazz Festival LA: CALL TO ARTISTS Commemorative Poster Art Contest Rules

The annual Central Avenue Jazz Festival celebrates the legacy of the historic Central Avenue corridor in South Los Angeles and is one of the last few genuine jazz celebrations left in the Southern California region. This festival is a free family-friendly event paying tribute to jazz greats such Louis Armstrong, Charles Mingus, Billie Holiday, Dexter Gordon and Gerald Wilson, while putting a spotlight on the younger emerging artists that are continuing this rich art form.

From the early 1900s to the 1950s, Central Avenue became the epicenter for music, especially with the sound of Rhythm and Blues, and upbeat tones of Jazz. With music as its center, Central Avenue quickly became the heart and soul of the African American community in Los Angeles.
