Synopsis: Tenth Anniversary reflections on the 1992 uprising in Los Angeles. On April 29, 1992, the acquittal of the four police officers charged with beating motorist Rodney King sparked a violent, 3-day riot. At the ten-year anniversary, we need to remember what happened and why. Neither journalistic nor academic, this is the only book about the riots to present diverse ethnic, geographic, and socio-economic personal writing, including Anne Beatts, Wanda Coleman, Kitty Felde, Lynell George, Gar Anthony Haywood, Erin Aubry Kaplan, Eric Lax, Gary Phillips, David Ulin, Oscar Villaon, Elizabeth Wong. and others.
