The Grass Roots Cultural Center and bookstore in Golden Hill existed to empower, enlighten, and uplift San Diego's progressive
community through the presentation and support of otherwise unavailable cultural expression. The Grass Roots Cultural Center
focused on three main areas: assisting significant cultural workers and organizations representing a broad cross-section of
San Diego's progressive community; offering a multi-cultural selection of educational and inspirational materials at the bookstore,
otherwise not readily available in San Diego; and providing a diverse series of programs which carefully integrated superior
artistic quality with serious social significance.
