A Taste of Carson, California

did you know?
DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT CARSON?

  1. Carson is a city in Los Angeles County, California. As of the 2010 census, Carson had a total population of 91,714. It is located 13 miles south of downtown Los Angeles, and is known as a suburb of the city.

  2. Carson is the site of California State University, Dominguez Hills (CSUDH). CSUDH is a major commuter school, particularly for African-American students from the surrounding cities of Long Beach, Gardena, and Compton. It was established in the wake of the 1965 Watts riots, as a response to community outcry over the lack of higher education opportunities in the largely black south suburbs of Los Angeles. Today it is among the most racially diverse campuses in the United States. Prior to expansion in the mid 1960s, the university was located in nearby Palos Verdes. In 1965, Carson was chosen as the home for the relocating university over the communities of Friendship Park, Fort MacArthur and Torrance.
