At one of the City’s great assets, First Lady Jill Biden praised the graduates of Los Angeles City College. This two-year class started in the pandemic (Zoom University) and graduated on Election Day 2022, into another round of changes and challenges.
As I drove into LA in 1965, LA City was an early stop – what a wild, wonderful spot. Tuition was $6.50 a semester, teachers were excellent and they welcomed the new and the diverse. Without a LA City, there could have been no UCLA.
