Cultural Touchstones of the LA Riots

Hosted by  • 

On today's anniversary edition of Which Way, LA?, we look at music, movies and literature that reflected – and in some cases predicted – the 1992 Los Angeles riots. We hear from filmmaker John Singleton, writer and actress Anna Deavere Smith, musicians Ozomatli and others about the cultural touchstones of riots-era Los Angeles. (For additional KCRW coverage of the 1992 riots, go to http://KCRW.com/LARiots.)
