Join thousands of folks in the historic Leimert Park Village to celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with a full community festival hosted by Councilmembers Marqueece Harris-Dawson, Curren Price, and Council President Herb Wesson. The Freedom Festival includes job opportunities, local merchants, city resources, mobile health units, and a mobile art exhibit. Live entertainment this year includes three separate stages, hosted by KJLH, the Wave, and KDAY. Plus, there will be performances at Barbara Morrison Performing Art Center, the California Jazz and Blues Museum, and Kaos Network.
This year theme is “The Future is Ours,” and we’ve brought together several community organizations with a focus on homelessness, protecting health care and our environment, as well as defend the rights of immigrants.
