Little Tokyo's Azusa Street Mission Movement Influence to the World

200 N Spring Street, Los Angeles

Azusa Street, adjacent to Los Angeles' Japanese American Cultural & Community Center in Little Tokyo, is today little more than an alley. Yet historically it is considered the birthplace of a religious movement that now counts more than 500 million adherents -- the Pentecostal movement, founded in Los Angeles in 1906 by Pastor William Seymour. The Pentecostal movement will celebrate its centennial in Los Angeles from April 26-29, 2006.

On Friday, February 3, the Tom Bradley Legacy Foundation, in co-operation with the Azusa Street Memorial Committee, will present a Black History Month program that looks at the history and significance of Azusa Street. See the attached flyer for program information.
