This chapter explores the history of the institutionalization of the Underground Musicians and Artists Association (UGMAA). Despite the decline of the U.S. economy during the 1970s, the organization was able to achieve nonprofit status and acquire a substantial building to ground their activity and launch programs only contemplated for many years. Thus, the UGMAA continued to be a force for African American culture and community in South Central Los Angeles despite the increasingly difficult times within the area.

Keywords:   institutionalization, economic decline, nonprofit status, African American culture
