Bakewell Media and LA Sentinel present
Salute to the Legacy of
Message from the Founder

Taste of Soul has grown into the greatest demonstration of all that is possible for and within our community when we collectively pull our time, resources, and talents for the betterment of all.

The millions of people who have enjoyed Taste of Soul over the years sends a clear message to everyone that as businessmen and women, consumers and as a political force, we cannot and will not be ignored or denied.

Our corporate partners understand the collective power that the Taste of Soul Nation has become. Our political friends realize that the ability to mobilize hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people is a powerful tool that everyone understands and respects. Everyone who is apart of Taste of Soul realize that there is no greater economic driver in the city for African- American Businesses than Taste of Soul.

October 21st we will celebrate our 12th year, and we are so excited to be BACK, strollin’ down THE SHAW, united and stronger than ever.

Danny J. Bakewell, Sr.
Creator/Founder and Chairman
