Can you imagine owning so much land that you donate 75,000 acres to be incorporated as a city? That’s what happened in 1887 when Griffith D. Compton donated his lands, eventually to be incorporated in 1889, for the purpose of improving local government. The area of Compton was settled only twenty years earlier when a small group of 30 pioneers entered the area in search of a way to make a living away from the exhaustive work in the goldfields. For that purpose, Mr. Compton stipulated that a portion of the lands donated were to be zoned solely for agriculture and he named the land Richland Farms. The city attracted the African American families who had begun migrating from the rural South and became their home away from home. The residential plots throughout Richland Farms gave residents enough space to raise their families, grow food, build barns, and care for livestock. While Mr. Compton could not afford to support a large-scale agricultural business, his donation of the land gave residents an opportunity to work the land for their own families.
The City of Compton has always attracted young, ambitious, hard-working people. Not only has Compton remained a central hub for the working-class in SoCal but it is also home to a relatively young population with a median age of just 25, compared to the American median age of 35. If you ever watched The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air you’ll remember that Will Smith’s best friend, DJ Jazzy Jeff, played a young man living in Compton. In fact, the city has been the launching pad for many young rap artists throughout the years, like N.W.A., made up of Eazy-E, MC Ren, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, and DJ Yella. Coolio, DJ Quik, Nichant, Jeeves, The Game, Kendrick Lamar, YG, and Compton’s Most Wanted are all Compton made as well.
