The L.A. uprising, set off by the acquittals of police in the beating of Rodney King and the killing of a Black teenager by a Korean shop owner, divided the Asian American and Black communities.
Young organizers today say that until Asian Americans reckon with what happened in 1992, their communities will not be able to organize effectively in solidarity with Black Lives Matter.
