I had a great time with my family learning about the history of the first African-American Firefighter and the history behind the museum.

This is a historical hidden gem! I encourage families, mentoring groups, teachers and everyone else to visit this museum. People need reminders of how we have persevered through so much hatred of ou...r race, and this fire station turned museum, is a perfect example of overcoming obstacles. Add this to your list of things to see on LA. � See More

Really opened my eyes to a history of Los Angeles I had not heard of before.
"THE OLD STENTORIANS" of Los Angeles City Fire Department
(Video)The Unveiling of Bust for retired firefighter Arnett Hartsfield - KABC
An amazing moment captured here at the museum. An Old Stentorian looks on and into the past at photographs taken in the 1930's, 40's, and 50's. Naming Firefighters he worked along side with in the City of Los Angeles. "Those were the days" #Flory #LAFD

Awesome! #Leadership

Recently I had the pleasure of visiting and speaking at Aurora Colorado's Race Day, titled: Firefighters, Race and Sex. The problems Firefighters, Fire Departme...nts have with Race and Sex are common, long standing and similar in all cases. In the 18th and 19th centuries slaves and Black Free men were Firemen in Macon, Savannah and Charleston. They provided manpower and back bone to these Fire Departments. In 1818 NYC, Moly Williams, a slave was allowed to volunteer as a firefighter, but, 1818 Philadelphia, the African Fire Association who were made up of Free Blacks were discouraged from organizing in their own community. Today the Aurora Fire Department has hit a wall with Blacks and Females, now they need a viable plan to hire more.
