Most popular of 2010 - Labor Day fest, Marlton Square blight, Juneteenth celebration, Jazz events, Drum Circles is not a blog, because it takes more than one person to tell the story of our village. All are invited to share their news, their successes and their concerns with like-mind people - their neighbors.


We had some amazing contributions from citizen journalists, community activists and neighbors. Please thank them! The following are the most visited stories on Leimert Park Beat in 2010.

1. The second Leimert Park African Art and Music Festival attracted thousands and we were there thanks to L.Watts.
