Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The Office for Black Community Development was established in the late 1970's as a vehicle to drive Black economic self-sufficiency in the wake of the Watts Riots. The group, made up of community activists and educators, secured a $1.16 million dollar grant from the California Governor's Food Policy Council to establish a Black Supermarket Training Program to help address the food needs of Watts area residents. This paper explores the triumphs and setbacks and the tremendous impact of this fledgling and short-lived community revitalization organization.
