Just Another Day In SouthLA

African American Firefighter Museum Celebrates 15 Years

Did you know there was a African American Firefighter Museum in Los Angeles? Yea, I know, right? Well located at 1401 South Central Ave., Los Angeles, CA lies a very kind of awesome looking old Firehouse that houses the African American Firefighter Museum, which opened up shop December 13, 1997 and has been completely volunteer based ever since.  The dedication of the museum, which is an historical landmark also served as an acknowledgement of “what was believed to be the city’s first 100 years of service by African American Firefighters (1897-1997).”  The AAFM celebrated the big 15 last Saturday with a little Gala at he City Club on Bunker Hill.  Looks like I got some site seeing on Central to checkout #AAFM #SouthLA.
