In Los Angeles County, African Americans represent 7.9% of the population.

AdvertisementOn Friday, I toured skid row in downtown Los Angeles, which I first became familiar with 15 years ago after befriending a homeless African American musician.

You can find homeless Black people in any part of L.A. County these days, but why such a concentration on skid row?

Through the decades, if you’re destitute, sick, hungry, traumatized, skid row is where you go.

Black people represent about 13% of the U.S. population and 40% of the nation’s homeless population.
