Description: Raw footage from a show titled "Los Angeles History Project" that aired on KCET in Los Angeles, from 1988 through 1990. Each of the three seasons consisted of four episodes. Frank Wilkinson worked for the Los Angeles City Housing Authority from 1942-1952. Mr. Wilkinson was committed to eliminating LA slums and to improving the quality of life for the black population and the working class. He participated in the development of public housing projects and was at the center of the controversial Chavez Ravine project. As a result of his efforts he lost his job and was blacklisted during the height of McCarthyism. He was 73 years old at the time of this interview.
