Map: West Hollywood: the Community in Action, Community Business Promotions, 1993
Glen Creason, June 01, 2015

To honor LGBT Heritage Month at the library we present this pictorial map of West Hollywood, one of America’s most enlightened cities. Street maps from as recently as the 1970’s ignored the growing power of the gay community in the little city between Beverly Hills and Hollywood.

Picture the world map six decades ago. Were all the countries and their flags the same as we know them today? How about traveling a couple of millennia back? What were the Seven Wonders of the ancient world and where did they reside?

To commemorate Black History month, Central Library offers two maps that exemplify the struggles and triumphs of African-Americans in this country. The first is “Americans of Negro Lineage” by the great Louise E. Jefferson, published by the Friendship Press in 1946.

I have always felt it was a shame that so many maps and the stories they tell are buried in drawers where no one can hear them.
