Black History Month, Fox Fullerton, and more

The Santa Ana Black Historical Society has installed a display for Black History Month on the 3rd floor landing of the Old Orange County Courthouse. (Some of the panels are shown in today's photo.) Rather than focusing on national figures, the display depicts black citizens who have made an impression on the history of Santa Ana and Orange County. The SABHS meets the 3rd Thursday of the month, at 6pm, in the South West Senior Center, 2201 W. McFadden St., Santa Ana. For information, call (714) 505-3408.

Werner at has recently posted new pages for Monsanto's Plastics Home of the Future and the old Conestoga Wagons at Disneyland.

The Fox Fullerton Theatre (1925), at 221 N. Harbor, will show"True Grit”(1969), starring longtime OC resident John Wayne as U.S. Marshall Rooster Cogburn, on Feb. 15th. The good news is, the show is free and also includes a trivia contest, raffle and cartoon. The bad news is the theatre's interior is still under renovation, so the movie will be shown in the parking lot in back. Dress warmly. The fun begins at 7pm.

If you haven't seen it already, Bruce Beal has posted a six-part series, The History of Surfing in Dana Point, on the Dana Point Historical Society's website.
