Last week, commemorating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, Human Resources, Diversity and Inclusion Vice President Lori Gentles attended a community event at Compton College featuring Congresswoman Janice Hahn, who was joined by local civil rights leaders and activists for an engaging public conversation. In 1961 Hahn’s father, legendary  L.A. County Supervisor Kenny Hahn, was the only elected official willing to greet the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. when he arrived at the Los Angeles International Airport in 1961.
