I loved this Leimert Park piece, this is one of my favorite cultural centers in Los Angeles. I love hanging out at The World Stage, to hear outstanding jazz and chatting with the local artists in the area.
Leimert Park,specifically Degnan Ave. has such a postive vibe, it's a wonderful,spiritual and soulful place to be. I'm sure Huell, you picked up that positive vibe, when you visted this part of the city ! I haven't been to my " old stomping ground " for a while, but now that Iv'e taken this trip down Memory Lane with you, looks like I will have to check the nighborhood out and pick up some cards, African clothing and art for the start of Kwanzza, which starts the day after Christmas.
Huell, I didn't realize that you had so much soul !! Thanks for doing this outstanding piece on the Leimert Park community.
