welcome. My name is Kay. I am an African American entrepreneur who travels.
While traveling I was dismayed to find no readily available sources of social
information for African Americans on the go. Since that time computers have
become a part of practically every household, now all types of information are
as close as your fingertips. But how do you know what's what when there is so
much available? How do you know which places are safe to travel to? These
question plagued me as well, so I went on a search. I along with family and
friends came up with a list of not only popular places; but safe places as well.
We feel these listing are some of the finest establishments in the LA area that
welcome or are owned by African American. None of the listing contained herein
have paid a fee to be included, and they are here because we feel they are
worthy of mention. We'd like to remind you that where ever you are, it is always
a good idea to exercise caution. Lastly KAAIE assumes no responsibility, and
once again reminds you that this is an informational source only. If you know of
a facility that falls within the categories listed in this city or any other,
AND, have no personal interest; we invite you to e-mail us with the names and
addresses. We will review your information and add it if we feel it is falls
within our guidelines.

listing are for those of you who are away from home and looking for religious
services. We have compiled a list of some of our most popular churches.
Although we feel all the churches in LA are worthy of mention, there is
not enough time nor space to list them all. Many usually have heavy attendance,
and it maybe necessary to be there earlier than the start time in order
to secure parking and a seat in the sanctuary. We pray you receive what
you came for during your visit.
