About Our College

Los Angeles Southwest College was established in 1967,[1] two years after the Watts Rebellion, in response to complaints of both officials and citizens that not enough was being done to educate the area's mostly African American population. The college, located at the intersection of Western Avenue and Imperial Highway, is the only community college in South Central Los Angeles.
