Sun Ra was born Herman Poole Blount in Birmingham, Alabama in 1914. Dedicated to awareness and a cosmic philosophy, Ra transformed into a creative, cosmic being by the name of Le Sony’r Ra, born to the Angel Race of  Saturn.  Ra was a pioneering afro-futurist and experimental composer. His first Los Angeles performance was at Dorsey High School in 1969, just a few blocks from where William Grant Still Arts Center is today.
