Belmar Triangle Lecture at Santa Monica History Museum

In celebration of Black History Month, the Santa Monica History Museum will host a free talk by local columnist Frank Gruber about the Belmar Triangle, an African-American neighborhood that was razed in the 1950s to build the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium.

Gruber writes a weekly column for The Santa Monica Lookout News website and is the author of the book, Urban Worrier: Making Politics Personal. Gruber’s talk will trace the history of the African-American commercial and residential district that arose on both sides of Pico Boulevard, around Third and Fourth Streets, beginning early in the 20th century.

Event will take place on Sunday, February 20th from 2pm to 4pm located at the Santa Monica History Museum, 1350 7th St (adjacent to the SM Main Public Library).

Call (310) 395-2290 to RSVP. RSVP is strongly recommended due to limited seating.

    I was glad to see there was a full house at this lecture. This was a fascinating and well-presented talk. What happened to the residents and businesses of Belmar Triangle is an important chapter in the history of Santa Monica. Perhaps more importantly, there’s a lesson to be learned for today’s communities, to understand how a city administration can declare a vibrant neighborhood a “blight”, apply eminent domain and dislocate families from their homes only to level the dwellings for an inappropriate facility with limited relevance, longevity or commercial impact.

    No student ever attains very eminent success by simply doing what is required of him: it is the amount and excellence of what is over and above the required, that determines the greatness of ultimate distinction.
