K-Town '92-Reporters (Episode #301)

KQED World: Fri, Oct 13, 2017 -- 2:00 AM

K-TOWN '92 REPORTERS is a short documentary film that looks at the city-wide civil unrest that erupted in 1992 after the acquittal of police officers accused of brutally beating a black man named Rodney King. Journalists Hector Tobar, Tammerlin Drummond, and John Lee covered the story for the Los Angeles Times, the city's paper of record, providing major and in-depth reporting on the destruction and deaths that resulted. Twenty-five years later, they revisit their stories and impressions of those tumultuous events, and the media coverage they helped to create.
