Reaching for the Stars

Did you hear?! It was another galvanizing night in The City! Wednesday night in downtown L.A. saw an amazing lineup of performances from Inner-City Arts, Homeboy Industries, and of course, the InsideOUT Writers and J.T!

The set also included a handful of local actors, poets and writers, and even hip hop dancers and comedians, each of whom delivered their own brand of the magic that makes L.A. one of the foremost creative hubs on the map.

To cap things off, it was one of IOW’s youngest writers — a sixteen year old ‘Ms. Jackson’ — who closed out the show when her performance was met with a standing ovation by a raucous crowd!

The night was the first of its kind for IOW at the venue, due in no small part to the gracious support of the legendary Richard Cabral. But rest assured, if you missed us, there will be more soon! Hanging and gliding through The City together, the road has never been brighter.

I'm a writer, editor, and photographer with a passion for community development en Los Angeles. While my editing work covers a range of different subjects, my writing focuses primarily on social welfare in the city, including education at L.A.'s public middle and high schools, public transportation planning and efficacy, housing and small business policy, as well as voting turnout for local elections and policy. My photography is similarly city-based, focusing mostly on what makes Los Angeles home to so many working-class people from all across the U.S.A. and throughout the world. Enjoy.
