The details (from wikipedia)


Carey K. Jenkins (d. 1987) was an African-American architect active in the Los Angeles area in the mid-20th century. He was the first black graduate of the University of Southern California (USC) School of Architecture. He worked for A. Quincy Jones in the late 1940s.

Jenkins was known to be "politically well-connected." The Los Angeles Tribune commented: "James Garrott, Paul R. Williams, and Carey Jenkins, are the only Negro architects ever to get a public contract in this slate ... and except for Williams they get them infrequently."

His offices were located in Beverly Hills in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

Jenkins partnered with Charles E. Fleming to complete the Martin Luther King, Jr. General Hospital in the Watts neighborhood in 1972. In the late 1970s, Jenkins-Fleming, Inc. had offices in six U.S. cities and in West Africa, and Jenkins was chairman of the board.
