Why: The Stories Of The Los Angeles Harbor Area: For Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow (SOLAHA) oral history project, filmed in 2018, aims to preserve the significant history of the people and communities of the Los Angeles harbor area that spans from the port towns of San Pedro and Wilmington, to include Lomita, Harbor City and the Palos Verdes Peninsula, recognizing what is inherent to inspire future generations to continue striving to make it a great place to live, work, and invest in as the area continues to progress. Twenty individuals participated that became 72 stories.
“The Movie” is a composite including one representative anecdote from each participant to demonstrate and instill the importance of retaining memories of the past for the present and future. Volume I is the first ever oral history project under the auspices of Los Angeles County made possible through grant funding by Supervisor Janice Hahn, District 4. Plans are underway for Volume II to be recorded within 2019.
