Summary In the summer of 1965, tensions in South Central Los Angeles exploded: high unemployment, poverty, and racism ignited a tinderbox of frustration after a routine traffic arrest. In 1991, the same conditions once again resulted in riots, violence, and looting after the acquittal of four white police officers in the beating of Rodney King. This program examines the socioeconomic conditions in Watts that have made it an ongoing hotbed of violence. Community activists and long-time residents, along with younger residents, address the question of why it happened in 1965 and 1991-and what can be done so that it does not happen again.
