From Alamitos Beach to Zaferia and every neighborhood in between, we welcome your stories!

The Long Beach City College Community Studies Program and the Historical Society of Long Beach welcome submissions for the Third Long Beach Community Studies Conference to be held at LBCC’s LAC Campus on Saturday, April 26, 2014. The 2014 theme is The City’s Neighborhoods Past & Present.

The growing number of scholars, activists, and engaged community members interested in Long Beach gives us great hope to assemble another outstanding group of presenters bringing together a broad range of topics for the third conference. Thoughtful observers of neighborhood change, including historians, geographers, environmentalists, social scientists, architects, journalists, and demographers, are invited to share their research and community projects. Past presenters have included independent scholars, community researchers, faculty members, archivists, librarians, and students, all committed to discussing Long Beach and its environs.
