On this Memorial Day, Greater LA rebroadcasts two segments from its series on the history of LA’s street names. 

Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu sits on land that was the private domain of one woman 100 years ago.

After 152 years, Calle de los Negros – site of the most lethal act of racial violence in LA history – will finally get the memorial it deserves.
