Eugene Hutchins

Cultural Policy

Eugene Hutchins, a Cultural Policy Fellow from Altadena.  For his action project, Eugene has put together a grass-roots working group of seven people to organize and install a public memorial for Lt. O. Oliver Goodall in Altadena where he lived for more than 50 years. He was a Tuskegee Airman, Civil Rights Leader and was the recipient of the Rosa Parks Legacy Award from the NACCP. Eugene has engaged his local community by putting together a coalition of community organizations including The Rotary Club of Altadena, Altadena Community Chest, Altadena Heritage, Altadena Community Garden, Altadena Town Council, and Tuskegee Airmen, Los Angeles Chapter.  Pasadena Now published an article about this project. The unveiling of the monument will bring together in a shared cultural experience.
