From Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez Desk – The Celebration of Black History Month

The Celebration of Black History Month

Continuing the celebration of #BlackHistoryMonth, we celebrate Hillery Broadous and his wife Rosa who helped organize the San Fernando Valley branch of the NAACP. They were also instrumental in lobbying for $60,000 to develop Filmore Park later named Hubert Humphrey Park. Hillery founded Calvary Baptist Church in Pacoima and served the community faithfully.
The City of Los Angeles gave tribute to the numerous contributions of Reverend Broadous by renaming Filmore Elementary after him. The Community center on Glenoaks Blvd is named after Alicia Broadous. The Broadous name is embedded in Pacoima history and the countless contributions made by Reverend Broadous and his family.
