The Los Angeles Sentinel is a weekly African-American owned newspaper published in Los Angeles, California. The paper boasts of reaching 125,000 readers as of 2004[update], making it one of the oldest, largest and most influential African-American newspapers in the Western United States. The Sentinel was also noted for their coverage of the changing African-American daily life experience in the post-1992 Los Angeles Riots era. 
The Sentinel was founded in 1933 by Leon H. Washington Jr. for black readers. Since that time, the newspaper has been considered a staple of black life in Los Angeles. The paper mainly focuses on and thus enjoys most of its circulation in the predominantly African-American neighborhoods of South Los Angeles, Inglewood and Compton.
