Rap group N.W.A. glorified Compton as ground zero of urban Black life -- while at the same time the city's demographics showed a shift towards a Latino majority.
KCET's Departures' oral history and interactive documentary project showcases Richland farms, a hidden urban agricultural pocket of Compton.
When Reverend Compton donated the land that we now know as Compton, he stipulated that a certain acreage be zoned for agricultural purposes. Thus the City of Compton and Richland Farms were born.
