African Marketplace and Drum Circle in Leimert Park Village

New permit requirements in the city of Los Angeles have made it difficult for street vendors to sell goods in Leimert Park Village. Local organizers are working to obtain a long-term permit. The marketplace takes place on Sundays on Degnan Boulevard and 43rd Place.

“The African Market Place and Drum Circle came out of necessity,” said Jenn Laurent, who is a representative of the Leimert Park Vendors. “Street vending has always been a part of the culture in the village. It was more informal. It was based around culture, community, spirituality, and it was attached to the meaning of the drum circles.”

“As the Councilmember for the 10th Council District – and longtime resident of Leimert Park – I have a deep appreciation for the historic and cultural significance of the village,” said Councilmember Mark Ridley-Thomas. “In no small part, I see my role as working to ensure that the village lives up to its full potential, and that it is clean and welcoming for all members of our community to enjoy. This means investing in improvements to the plaza, bringing back the crown jewel of the village – the iconic Vision Theater – facilitating street improvements, and supporting small businesses and local commerce including the marketplace for the benefit of local vendors and visitors alike. My office is committed to working with the businesses, festivals and events taking place in the village to ensure they operate safely and professionally, and so that we hold true to the standard and potential of what Leimert Park can and should be. We deserve nothing less.”

Community Build’s gang prevention program

Community Build,Inc. provides daily activities for children who are at risk of joining gangs.

“We get them at that age where they can still be molded,” said Khary Crump, assistant director of Community Build’s Gang Reduction Youth Development Program (GRYD). “Most of our kids are just leaving elementary or are in middle school. They’re at that age where they’re still willing to listen. We can give them activities and they’ll do it."

“All of our activities have a learning component attached to it,” Crump said. “When these kids think that they’re just being entertained, there’s always some type of education component attached to it. With the STEM program, they think that they’re making a toy car, but they’re learning how kinetic energy works. Even with the painting, they’re learning how to follow directions, and they’re learning how to do things that they didn’t feel like they could ever do.”

Muralist Moses Ball’s work is on display in South Los Angeles

Local muralist Moses Ball showcases Black communities in a positive light through his art. Check out his mural “The Heart of Hyde Park” on the corner of Crenshaw Blvd. and Slauson Ave.

“It was birthed out of a desire to speak up about possible gentrification that could happen in our community...," Ball said.

“It’s a real vision of what the community is. This community is home. If this is home to you, you see everything through rose colored glasses sometimes. But it’s also accurate. We have real people here who are fighting for housing rights, who try to get good and healthy food in the community, and who are just trying to make a positive impact. There’s no place that I’d rather be than right here on Crenshaw.”

“The thing that I love about this mural is that even non-famous folks or less known folks who had major impact on the community are highlighted in the same light that he (Nipsey Hussle) was.”
