THE MUSIC FINDS A WAY
A PAPA/UGMAA Oral History of Growing Up In Postwar South Central Los Angeles
by Steven L. Isoardi
with artists of The Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra
and The Union of God’s Musicians and Artists Ascension
In the post World War II era, dozens of young African Americans in South Central Los Angeles found their way to careers in music. In a community facing challenging social conditions and with little to no outside support, they would become artists, supported by the best that their community and culture had to offer, from neighborhood and family to schools and churches, private teachers, formal and informal spaces and institutions, and more than a few unsung heroes.
