CELEBRATING OUR LEGACY
BUILDING OUR FUTURE
WATCH THE INTRODUCTION
We are stamping Crenshaw Boulevard’s 200+ years as the spine of Los Angeles’ Black community with a $100 million infrastructure project that will boost our community through economic development, job creation, and environmental healing, while elevating Black art and culture.
When completed, Destination Crenshaw will be the place to experience the most dynamic expression of Black American culture in the United States. A 1.3-mile stretch of Crenshaw Boulevard will be transformed from an area that has long deserved economic investment and strategic urban planning, into a thriving commercial corridor linked by architecturally stunning community spaces and pocket parks, hundreds of newly planted trees, and over 100 commissioned works of art.
The Crenshaw District is the cradle of Black American creativity. Who we are – our joy, our strength, and our struggle – is rooted in this neighborhood. We are unapologetically Black, and we want the world to know it. With beautifully designed community spaces, new murals, iconic sculptures, world-class landscaping and architecture and artistic programming, Destination Crenshaw is a commitment to our cultural and spacial permanence. It is a place to honor Black triumphs, build Black futures, and make a statement celebrating our present and our presence.
