How It Works

The Concept

Every community deserves a voice.


LeimertParkBeat.com is not a blog, because it takes more than one person to cover a neighborhood. LeimbertParkBeat.com is not a newspaper, it is where you find out what's new. And it's not Facebook, because the most important topic isn't yourself but your neighborhood.

With LeimertParkBeat.com, residents, business people and others who care about their neighborhood have the ability to decide what's the news. LeimertParkBeat.com is centered on the Soul of Los Angeles in Los Angeles, African American cultural center of the city.

Post info about the Leimert Park Art Walk, rave about your favorite dish at Ackee Bamboo and share video of the Kingdom Day MLK parade. Spend your time and money where it makes the biggest impact – your neighborhood.


While you share, educate and inform, you also learn: The Magic Johnson Theater is planned to re-open in May; The Crenshaw Farmers Market is the place to be every Saturday morning; and you discover any number of other notable eccentricities that make the place where you live lovable and unique.


The process creates informed citizens, which is one step closer to active citizens.

These diverse voices have at least one thing in common - they care about their community. They care about Leimert Park. By forming a cooperative, our united voice is more accurate, more current and more representative than the individual.

That's the power of community. That's the power of .com unity.

Welcome to LeimertParkBeat.com. Welcome to Leimert Park.
