Celebrations of Juneteenth were bigger than ever this year, given the timing of the many Black Lives Matter protests for racial justice, sparked by the police killing of George Floyd.

Juneteenth gatherings happened across the city of Los Angeles, but Leimert Park might have had the biggest of them all.

By many accounts, this was the largest crowd locals had seen in the 11 years of Leimert Park's annual Juneteenth Celebration.
