We are excited to announce the start of the 2020 Libros Schmibros Summer Fellowship Program! During the month of July, students from Roosevelt and Mendez High School will hear from several speakers— filmmakers, policy experts, journalists, poets, and scholars— who will share with us their knowledge of the city. We have revised our course plan to reflect the national conversations around police accountability, economic disparities, and education in city governance that have been galvanized by the murder of George Floyd. For our first week we discussed LA’s indigenous history, how racist policies shaped our zoning laws, and studied the structure of our city’s government.
