 OCA-WHV marks Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month by presenting "K-Town ’92: Reporters," a short documentary about the riots in 1992 Los Angeles after four LAPD officers were acquitted of brutally beating motorist Rodney King.

“K-Town” is Koreatown, a neighborhood in Central L.A. where tensions between Koreans and Blacks had risen prior to the King verdict and which was hit hard by the civil unrest after it.

In "K-Town '92: Reporters," three journalists who covered the riots for the Los Angeles Times revisit their stories and feelings about those volatile events, and the media coverage they helped to generate. After the film there will be time for discussion.
