Description

30 years ago America watched in horror as South Central Los Angeles burned after the not guilty verdict was announced in the Rodney King police beating. 28 years later we saw a country wide eruption of frustration over law enforcement's extra judicial killings of George Floyd and Breona Taylor. From 1968 in Watts, to 1992 in South Central, to 2020 what is the main function of these uprisings and what have they accomplished in their wake? What has changed with law enforcement? Is the idea of reforming law enforcement a bourgeois project? Has BLM or Abolish/Defund the Police helped or is it simply a more radical hashtag activism? We’ll ask these questions and more.
