Councilmember Herb J. Wesson, Jr.'s call to action after George Floyd was killed by a Minneapolis police officer.

We’ve been slaves, we’ve fought in wars, what more do we have to do to prove we’re human and an equal? We’ve fought enough, who will stand up and fight for us this time?

HBO Insecure actor Kendrick Sampson at a Black Lives Matter - Los Angeles rally:

“I’m fed up! I’m sure y’all are fed up and I know y’all are tired of posting ‘rest in power’ and ‘rest in peace.’ We don’t want to rest any more. We want to live and we want to thrive!”

Sampson passionately addressed a crowd of several hundred protesters at the Black Lives Matter rally. BLM-LA was protesting the death of George Floyd, who was killed by Minneapolis police. The protest was also to demand police accountability and to oust Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey.

“Everybody asks, ‘What can we do?’ Black Lives Matter (Los Angeles) has been out here every week for years.”

“The American legal system, there’s no justice in it. The American legal system was built to protect elite Whites from the people that they stole land from, and the people that they stole, trafficked, commodified — Black folks — and used to work the land and benefit from their labor. That is what the system is. So when we wonder why there is not justice in it. It’s not broken. It’s working exactly how it was meant to work.”

BLM-LA hosts multiple protests each week.

Remembering the legendary community activist and journalist Larry Aubry

“If it was important for South Central LA, Larry Aubry was always there. Every room. Every table. Having both comfortable and uncomfortable conversations… always focused on uplifting Black folk. He was in the room with elected officials, with Black Lives Matter, and with law enforcement. My archives are filled with images of Larry Aubry, in community. His face would always reveal his thoughts about the conversations taking place in those rooms. And his chuckle would always speak volumes. News of his death shook me. He was an important voice at any table. He will be missed.” - Photographer Leroy Hamilton

Larry Aubry was an activist who has focused his work on improving conditions for dangerously disenfranchised Black communities through coalition-building with other cultural and ethnic groups. His activism was spurred by his early experiences at Fremont High School in the 1940s, where he was one of the first Blacks to attend. As Charlotta Bass also documents in her book, Forty Years: Memoirs from the Pages of a Newspaper, Blacks were being hung in effigy from trees outside the school to protest integration. Aubry went on to become a social service worker, mainly in probation, but in a long career of community activism, he has also been a member of the Inglewood School Board; vice-president and education chair of the L.A. NAACP; a board member of Multicultural Collaborative and the Inglewood Coalition for Drug and Violence Prevention; vice-president of the A. Philip Randolph Institute; and a member of the Reparations United Front and the Committee to Save King Drew Medical Center. He began writing for the L.A. Sentinel in the early 1980s, and was honored by the Southern California Library in 2005 in recognition of a lifetime of being unafraid to speak the truth, building bridges, and working to bring justice to Los Angeles through his outstanding journalism as a columnist for the Sentinel.

Local mom-and-pop landlords seek aid during COVID-19 crisis - Los Angeles Standard Newspaper

Black and Latino small rental property owners are struggling to make mortgage payments, which may force them to sell properties. This could reduce more affordable housing that is available to locals. Mom-and-pop landlords, who are typically members of local communities, are dramatically different from the corporate landlords. The mom-and-pop landlords do not qualify for the same aid that corporate landlords do.

Dr. Cozzette Lyons-Jones with Watts Healthcare and the Association of Black Women Physicians (in Los Angeles), and Dr. Bill J. Releford, founder of the Black Barbershop Health Outreach Program - BBHOP, discuss why COVID-19 has hit Black communities so hard.

Initially many Black people believed that the coronavirus would not harm Black communities, but poor health and a lack of access to quality heath care has led to higher death rates from COVID-19 among African Americans.

•Working with local community development financial institutions (CDFI) opposed to large banks may be the key for local businesses to obtain relief funds. CDFIs were not included in the first stimulus packaged, but they are included in the second package.
