Taking place in historic Leimert Park Village, A Black History Month Freedom Festival in South LA celebrates Black attainment, art, and activism. This year’s theme Justice Together inspires us to take action and reminds us that we all have the power and the responsibility to shape our country and our neighborhoods as we want to see them. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said: “True peace is not merely the absence of tension; it is the presence of justice.” In addition to food, art, and vendors, the festival will also help residents learn more about important issues affecting our communities. The empowerment tent will share helpful information, as well as opportunities for jobs and community activism. Mainstage activities include arts and cultural programming (dance, music and theater), special guest speakers, presentations, DJ’s, and more in celebration of The Honorable Mayor Karen Bass, the first woman and second African American to hold the Office of Mayor of the City of Los Angeles.
