Event: The Los Angeles Riots of 1992

In April 1992, the city of Los Angeles was engulfed in one of its darkest periods in history. Fueled by decades of racial tension, economic disparity, and police brutality, the Los Angeles Riots erupted with an intensity and fury that shook the nation. Triggered by the acquittal of four police officers who brutally beat African American motorist Rodney King, the city became a battleground between angered protesters and law enforcement. Lasting for six days, the riots left a trail of destruction, despair, and raised vital questions about race relations and police accountability that still resonate today.
