Our Kids - Our Future

Mission Statement

The Biddy Mason Charitable Foundation provides quality services and support to current and former foster youth through innovative programs and collaborative initiatives with community partners


LA Made: Black Angeleno Trailblazer Families

Panel discussion about the many contributions African-American residents, such as Biddy Mason,  have made to the history of Los Angeles. Sherwin “Keith” Rice, a historian and archivist at the Tom & Ethel Bradley Center located at CSUN, provides the historical context for the panel discussion, which is moderated by Tyree Boyd-Pates, curator at the California African American Museum.

The impetus for this program was Los Angeles Public Library's recent digitization of The Liberator, L.A.'s first African-American newspaper, owned and edited by Jefferson Edmonds. His descendant, Arianne Edmonds, participated in the discussion, along with Tina Watkins-Quaye, whose grandfather Ted Watkins founded the Watts Labor Community Action Committee.
