Lynell George on Wilshire Boulevard

Hosted by

In the fourth "Iconic Wilshire Boulevard" story for cicLAvia and Pacific Time Standard Presents: Modern Architecture in LA, Lynell George talks to producer Edward Lifson about the dreams and disillusionment embodied in Wilshire Boulevard. As a writer, she equates the strip to a sentence or a river of words, "a great unscrolling street;" as a daughter, she associates Wilshire with a painful reminder of racism, experienced by her mother on arriving in Los Angeles full of high hopes.
