Preachers & Protestors in Leimert Park
Leimert Park in Los Angeles is a hub for street preachers, protestors and an assortment of individuals or groups with a message to disseminate through bull horns, signs and banners or simple 'hollar at the top of your lungs' delivery methods. At various times, you'll find Rastafari, Muslim, Christian, anti-government marchers and often live music. There are restaurants, clothing stores specializing in African attire, a cultural center, a bookstore and other shops that represent the milieu, making this a very lively place to paint. It was my turn this day to proclaim my message about Jesus.
