RT @profwolff: Two centuries of US capitalism not only failed to overcome systemic economic discrimination against African-Americans, it became cemented into the society's structure (see below). No equality of economic opportunity, nor of outcome. #BlackHistoryMonth https://t.co/SP2AmgCLZU .

@julian2: Especially at that time, it was a pretty stunning place to hang out. I wonder if they were eating or wine grapes? LA has a wine history, believe it or not.

He might be the first African-American resident. There were Spaniards and Mexicans who were of African descent as well and some of them may have lived in what later became Pasadena. Alta California governor Pío Pico was of African descent. The midwife who delivered him lived in an adobe in South Pasadena (my hometown and present location). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pío_Pico Those Pasadena/South Pasadena borders didn't get drawn 'til much later, though.
