Ten Years after the LA Riots: What Has Changed?

Hosted by
A decade after the 1992 riots, the Center for the Study of Los Angeles polled some 1500 LA residents about their perceptions of life in our city. The results are as diverse and complicated as LA itself. They reveal that opinions are colored by factors such as ethnicity and geography, and that despite much healing, much remains to be done to erase potential community conflict and create common ground. We join LA City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo, former Assemblyman Antonio Villaraigosa, Korean businessman Charles Kim, South-Central community leader Ted Watkins, and the LAPD's David Kalish for a look at the causes and impact of the riots. (Taped before a live audience at Loyola Marymount University.)
