Profile Information

So what brings you to Leimert Park Beat? Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I moved to the Leimert Park area near Crenshaw and Martin Luther King about six years ago and was overcome with the culture that now surrounds me.

I started this online community for my neighborhood as part of the master's program in online communities I am in at USC. I created Leimert Park Beat in April 2007.

It was always a dream of mine to have a newspaper. But here the community decides what's important by contributing the content. Leimert Park Beat strengthens the community by providing a virtual town square. Leimert Park Beat also empowers the community by giving it a voice in this big city.

After spending most of my life working at newspapers, I am now a media relations representative at a top research university.

I'm proud to be the chaplain, an elected position, in the Sutro Avenue Block Club. Our yearly barbecue is in August, holiday potluck is December and Yard Sale is in May.

I am also on the North Area Neighborhood Development Council, the city's neighborhood council which represents the area just east of Leimert Park.

Other neighborhood social networks I created:

University Park Family.com
Echo Park Online


If you would like to suggest a story, sponsor the site, contribute a blog post or if you would like to have help building your own online community, please contact me.

My Leimert Park Secret:
I first tell people I live in Leimert Park to see what they know.

Then I tell them I live near Crenshaw and King to see what they think they know.


If you live in the 90008 area code, you can use Leimert Park as the city of your address instead of Los Angeles. Only a few neighborhoods have this perk, such as Hollywood and Venice.

In memoriam: Lark Galloway-Gilliam, a force for good in Leimert Park

Posted on December 5, 2014 at 11:22am 0 Comments

Lark Galloway-Gilliam just worked and worked and worked. I saw few people more in the community over the past decade. She was doing things and getting things done, according the community organizations.

I didn't know her personally - but she made my life better because she made Leimert Park better and that's where I live.

Recently she was an important part of the group at the ECWANC that spearheaded the mitigation agreement with the California Science Center after…
