50 years ago, the world witnessed an amazing turn of events that resulted in the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Activists from across the country gathered in Selma under the leadership of Dr. Martin Luther King and others to fight for rights of African Americans and justice for everyone.

This civil rights struggle is ongoing. LA Commons has dedicated to this cause our annual transformative rite, Day of the Ancestors: Festival of Masks, to be held on Sunday June 28, 2015 in Leimert Park, the African American cultural hub of Los Angeles. The event features a procession, festival and live musical performances at which traditional artists, youth groups, and diverse community members engage in a celebration of the global African village, paying homage to their shared heritage through mask-making and dance.

LA Commons is an organization that creates inclusive, interactive arts programs promoting an increased understanding of Los Angeles’ diverse cultural traditions and the many voices that are part of the city. The 2015 Day of the Ancestors: Festival of Masks celebration is hosted in conjunction with KAOS Network, the Leimert Park Artwalk and the broader Leimert Park community. This year’s event will specifically feature community participants, mask dancers, giant puppeteers and musicians joining together for a procession, and all are invited to wear masks or carry photos of their ancestors. The procession is followed immediately by dance and musical performances by Peter & Roxanne Abilogu and the Oblinyanko Drum Assemble, Najite & Olokun Prophecy, S.H.I.N.E Muwasi and more !
