The Los Angeles Trade-Technical College Black Faculty & Staff Association (LATTC BFSA) is a member of the national organization (Washington, DC), the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH, pronounced, “uh-sawl-luh”) and the local branch (Los Angeles, CA), Our Authors Study Club. ASALH was established on September 9, 1915 by Dr. Carter G. Woodson, the founder of Black History Week turned Month. For 95 years, ASALH has promoted the study of African American history and has provided the nation with a Black History Week/Month theme.

Because of COVID-19, this year, we were not able to have our annual marquee event, The African American Heritage Bus Tour, that Our Authors Study Club has designed just for the Los Angeles Community College District and Trade-Tech. However, we worked with our college to create a very interactive and engaging array of activities that support this year’s theme, “The Black Family: Representation, Identity, and Diversity.”
These events are meant to take you beyond the typical talking heads and Zoom consumption, but are meant to be interactive and appropriate for family members of all ages as well. Since many of us are in multigenerational homes, we thought deeply about creating experiences that families could do together. See our list of events below, and come back frequently for updates.
