Bakewell Media and LA Sentinel present
Salute to the Legacy of
The Los Angeles Sentinel


The Los Angeles Sentinel is a weekly African-American-owned newspaper published in Los Angeles, California. The paper boasts of reaching 125,000 readers as of 2004, making it one of the oldest, largest and most influential African-American newspaper in the Western United States.

The Sentinel was founded and first published in 1933 by Col. Leon H. Washington for black readers. Since then the newspaper has been considered a staple of black life in Los Angeles. The paper mainly focuses on and thus enjoys most of its circulation in the predominantly African-American neighborhoods of South Los Angeles, Inglewood and Compton.

On March 17, 2004, the Sentinel was purchased and came under the direction of real estate developer and community activist Danny Bakewell. Recently Bakewell has updated equipment at the paper’s publishing facility and has worked to improve marketing and increase subscriptions.
