- Frederick Roberts, the first African American elected to the California Assembly, represented a district that was 70% white from 1918–1934 when he was defeated by the New Dealer, a young man named Augustus Hawkins. The Roberts family owned a mortuary in which Frederick was employed; he was also the publisher of the New Age newspaper. The City of Los Angeles named a park after him.
