Me and Black Santa in 2007

Our Black Santa, aka Langston Patterson, is back as Jolly St. Nick at the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza. I was so happy to see him, I think I had a twinkle in my eye–and I don’t even celebrate Christimas.

If you’re in L.A. and you’re looking for a Black Santa for your holiday photos, Mr. Patterson is at the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m. most days, even Santa apparently has to take a break.


Your entire family is invited to welcome Jolly St. Nick back to Baldwin Hills Crenshaw plaza this Holiday season.

Come visit Santa and his helpers in their new workshop located in Bradley Court.

Have a photo taken with Santa and pick up a FREE Holiday activity book, just for stopping by!
