Biddy Mason’s mark on the history of LA

Hosted by

Grandma Mason aka Bridget - Biddy - Mason was the first black woman to buy property in LA. She also founded the first black church too. By the time she died, she was wealthy and a philanthropist, an amazing feat considering she was born into slavery in Georgia. This month marks her 198th birthday, a woman not known by many, but who is an important part of LA history.
