Rich in African Heritage this experience provides a front seat look into the cultural diaspora known to urban Angelinos as The Leimert Park Village. The tour starts in the viliage center near the landmark Fountain that was once featured in the open credits to 90’s sitcom Moesha, I will start with historical information about the area, it’s evolution over the last 40 years, and future developments due to current Gentrification Plans. We’ll visit local shops including Sika (Legendary Hand Nose Piercing studio and cultural goods shop), and the Historical ESO WON Book store. Grab a quick snack at one of the the village restaurants like the Hot and Cool Café. Enjoy The California Jazz an blues museum where you just might be able to meet Legendary Singer and Songwriter Barbara Morrison. The tour will conclude at The Art and Practice Art Gallery. Weekend experiences are highly recommended due to the added element of the local street vendors offering everything from hand made African jewelry to vegan cuisine. The best day to book is the last Sunday of the month there are twice the amount of street vendor, live performances and community drum circle. This hidden inner city treasure is here for those looking to experience the local culture and to provide an experience that represents the African American Culture in Los Angeles. This experience is great for the entire family.
