No Place To Be Somebody
No Place To Be Somebody by Charles Gordone
An extraordinary mixture of poetry, raw inner city urban dialogue, along with an engrossing and dangerous plot conjures up Johnny Williams’s bar circa Harlem 1969. We track Johnny, Gabe, the dreamers, schemers low life’s, hypocrites, and innocents as they navigate in and out of the metropolitan myth of a way out to would be success.

Malcolm X and Alex Haley meet and engage in the continuous interviews that would become the Autobiography of Malcolm X.
On Tuesday, April 26, 2016 at 7:00 PM, I Alison Rose Jefferson, Ph.D. will do a presentation on the early twentieth century Black Angeleno resort in Manhattan beach known as Bruce’s Beach at the Manhattan Beach Library (1320 Highland Avenue, MB, CA 90266). In the program entitled “African American Leisure, Southern California Tales and Bruces’ Beach” I will discuss the history of the site and its agents, including misinformation passed down over the century and newly unearthed facts of the contentious relationship of the Bruces and City founders. The talk will be prepared from a chapter of my UC Santa Barbara dissertation study, “Leisure’s Race, Power and Place: The Recreation and Remembrance of African Americans in the California Dream.” This manuscript is being prepared for book publication.
