This weekend the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and Black Lives Matter-Los Angeles co-hosted #BlackSunday, an opportunity for the community to intentionally spend their dollars with Black-owned businesses, who were provided with booth space at no charge. The sounds of African drums played beneath children’s laughter, and happy loud conversations, as merchants embraced customers, exchanged business cards, shared wine and apple cider toasts, made plans to come to Black Lives Matter meetings, and prayed together after a day spent shopping amidst a crowded, newly-dubbed “Justice Center” in Leimert Park.
