Storybank

The Los Angeles Promise Zone is rich in Cultural Treasures—people, groups, events, music, food, places, and practices that residents and constituents identify as significant. These assets contribute to the area’s cultural vitality and are integral to the identity of the communities. This Storybank is a collection of photos, videos, and narratives featuring some of the Cultural Treasures nominated through the PZA initiative.
