At the present, the City of Compton does not have an Art Gallery, Culture Center, Aaron Brothers or even a Michaels Arts & Crafts store. However, if the public will go on-line at http://www.refresheverything.com/art4all and vote for the “Art 4 All” Project the Hub Heritage, Culture & Art Gallery will become one of Compton’s most vital and crucial cultural crossroad.

Favorite Malcolm X Quotes
1. You’re not to be so blind with patriotism that you can’t face reality. Wrong is wrong, no matter who does it or says it.
2. Nobody can give you freedom. Nobody can give you equality or justice or anything. If you’re a man, you take it.
3. Be peaceful, be courteous, obey the law, respect everyone; but if someone puts his hand on you, send him to the cemetery.
4. I don’t even call it violence when it’s in self defense; I call it intelligence.
5. Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.
