Central Avenue, Los Angeles, California (South Central, 1920-1950)

McCluster Billups, a Los Angeles design professional, received a special 1995 award for research and development of an informational brochure on Central Avenue in Los Angeles. This street, known as “The Avenue” played an exceptionally significant role in the cultural history of African Americans in the first half of the 20th century. The brochure identifies the architectural artifacts of Central Avenue and their historical and cultural significance. The Foundation also awarded McCluster Billups $500 for printing in 1998.
