Unheard LA – live in Mid-City (ep.4)

Sunday, February 18, 2018, 5:30pm - 7:00pm
Nate Holden Performing Arts Center 4718 West Washington Boulevard Los Angeles, CA 90016 Map and directions

Our second season of “Unheard L.A. — the stories of where you live” kicked off at the Nate Holden Performing Arts Center in February. Located along the Washington Boulevard corridor, the venue is operated by – and home to – the Ebony Repertory Theatre, a professional arts organization committed to bringing diverse, high-quality performing arts to the Mid-City community and the greater Los Angeles area.

KPCC In Person’s fourth installment of “Unheard L.A” featured an eclectic mix of community storytellers from across Southern California.

Audiences joined host Bruce A. Lemon Jr. for the live show and stuck around afterward for a mixer with the performers and fellow attendees.

As part of this series, we’ll be hearing true stories from people of different walks of life and diverse experiences. While all of our programming is intended to be inclusive and for a broad audience, it’s possible certain themes or language may not be deemed appropriate for all ages. If this were a movie, we’d probably rate it PG.
