On Saturday, April 13th, Hollenebeck Middle School in Boyle Heights will be celebrating it's 100th anniversary with a block party! Since Los Angeles is not a very old city, anything that is 100 years-old & plus in this city, has a lot of history! One of the most significant highlights in it's long history is that from the 1920's -1940's - and few more years after that, Hollenebeck, like neighboring Roosevelt High school, had the largest, multi-ethnic student body in Los Angeles - Jews, Mexicans, Japanese, Armenians, Russian Molokans, African Americans, Poles, etc. I don't think a student body this diverse has ever been duplicated anywhere else in the history of Los Angeles, but that's because of the uniqueness of the Boyle Heights demographics at the time. If you might know anyone who lived in Boyle Heights "back in the day" or much more recent, or if you went to Hollenebeck (I did not) you all might want to attend. It's only been 100 years in the making!
Obviously, becuase of the nature of the event, this will be a "no-host" meetup. Just show up if your interested, and do your own thing.
