For the past 2 yrs, Councilmember Marqueece Harris-Dawson (@mhdcd8) has worked w/ community thought leaders to "turn insult into opportunity" via #DestinationCrenshaw - a 1.3-mile-long open-air People's Museum honoring Black stories, culture & contributions to L.A. & beyond.
The “insult” was Metro’s plan to run a train at-grade up the spine of the Black community, thru the last Black business corridor, (at first) bypass the community’s cultural beating heart & build stations & commission art that deliberately ignored the context. #DestinationCrenshaw
“Insult” should be plural, is what I’m saying.

[The community was also given almost no warning that hundreds of trees would be ripped out so the Space Shuttle could be run up Crenshaw on the way to the Science Center in 2012. So, yeah... plural.] #DestinationCrenshaw
