The intersection of Jefferson Boulevard and Crenshaw Boulevard could become ‘Bishop Charles E. Blake Square’.  In honor of Bishop Charles E. Blake service as Pastor of West Angeles Church for 44 years, City Council President Herb Wesson introduced a motion in the Los Angeles City Council recently, naming the intersection of Jefferson Boulevard and Crenshaw Boulevard in honor of Bishop Charles E. Blake.

“Bishop Blake has been and continues to be one of our preeminent spiritual and community leaders,” said Wesson.  “We owe him a tremendous debt of gratitude for his many contributions and the lives he has touched in our community, and on the continent of Africa through his leadership of “Save Africa’s Children.”

Once approved by the City Council and signed by the Mayor, Council President Wesson will lead a community celebration commemorating the designation and the posting of the signs marking the location.
