 Black Communities: Identity, Growth and Language 

This site is the culmination of a project concentrated in a Black Urban Neighborhood in South Central Los Angeles - Leimert Park.  Our study focuses on this particular African American community and the discourses which it uses to define itself, create community while simultaneously growing as a strong black space.
