Just Talk: '92 LA Riots

92 LA Riots graphic

25 years ago, the acquittal of the Los Angeles Police Department officers on charges of excessive force in the arrest and beating of Rodney King sparked six days of protests and riots.  Join us for a discussion with Barbara Headle (History) as she shares her firsthand account of the riots and a conversation about what lessons we might learn from that time.  This program is part of the 2017 All Pikes Peak Reads @ UCCS project, focused on Anna Deavere Smith's Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992 as the chosen book for academic readers.  For more information on APPR@UCCS, including a creative contest for students, please visit the UCCS Humanities page.

When: Thursday, October 12, 7:00-8:30pm

Where: Library 3rd Floor Apse

Questions: Contact Martin Garnar at mgarnar@uccs.edu
