Terrell had an off-day from school so I decided to treat him to breakfast at the famous Watts Coffee House. It is located on 103rd Street & Wilmington Ave. inside the building which use to house the Mafundi Institute that was created from the 1965 Watts Riots.
Watts is a working-class community with South Los Angeles. Contrary to popular belief it is located within very specific boundaries: West – Central Avenue, East – Alameda, South – Imperial Highway and North -Firestone. The community is like a chamelion as it has changed over the years. It was mostly white, then following World War II, African-Americans became the dominant ethic group, then during the 80’s Latinos became the dominant group as evidenced today. However, African-American culture awareness remains popular.
