Located in the southwestern section of Los Angeles County, in the region known as the South Bay, is the City of Inglewood, California. While all of Southern California has a long history of exchanging ownership hands few have had such a history of tug-of-war over territory like Inglewood has. The earliest residents in the region were Native Americans who used the natural springs in the area for daily life. As Spanish soldiers settled the area, Native American inhabitants were forced to shift their daily routines and begin grazing their animals on the ocean side of Los Angeles in order to not infringe on mission lands.
By the 1920’s all Spanish and Native American settlers were long gone from the area and the City of Inglewood became a White neighborhood with its own chapter of the Klu Klux Klan. In 1922 the Klan’s activities in Inglewood were highlighted after the arrest of 37 men who had initiated a night-time raid on a suspected bootlegger and his family. During the raid one of the culprits and an Inglewood police officer were killed. The jury for the case rendered a verdict of “not guilty” for all defendants involved, which sparked a scandal that led to the eventual outlawing of the Ku Klux Klan in California.
In the 1960’s the racial makeup of Inglewood began to shift again with the eastern portion of the city being widely inhabited by the African American community. For the next decade the city experienced extreme racial tensions between Black and White residents. It took eighteen years for public schools to be desegregated.
