[ # ] Nat Geo looks back at LA 92 tonight
April 30th, 2017 under National Geographic

Back in 1992, LA was changed forever. The year beforehand four White cops were filmed beating an African American man up. They stood trial and on April 29th they were acquitted for his beating. Racial tensions were already at their peak and this verdict was the last straw. For the next six days and nights there would be riots, looting, fires, injuries and deaths in Los Angeles and the World watched it all go down on live television.

Tonight at 9p on Nat Geo’s LA 92, they look back at the LA Riots with archived video and actual news footage. No commentary just letting the story tell itself with the heartbreaking and shocking images as they happened over that week. From the verdict until until calm was eventually restored.

We can learn from out past and this is a powerful teaching material.
