The Long Commute

Hosted by

In the days of real-estate "redlining," black people could only buy property in some parts of Los Angeles. South LA became the center of African-American life and culture. But things changed and, in the era of gansta rap and Boyz n the Hood, black people began moving out. In the latest installment of KCRW's Below the Ten series, David Weinberg tells the story of two families that migrated to the Antelope Valley — where housing costs less, but commuting back to the old neighborhood means a long trip home.
