WHO/WHAT: This April 29 marks 30 years since four officers accused of violently beating Rodney King on video were acquitted leading to a city-wide civil unrest. That very day was the planned opening of the Japanese American National Museum, a moment of racial reckoning that shaped its history forever. Join Josie Huang (KPCC Radio), Professor Nadia Kim (Loyola Marymount University), Angela E. Oh (Los Angeles County Housing Resource Center), and Ambassador Michael Lawson (Los Angeles Urban League) as they explore the impact of that time in history, its impact on the panelists’ lives and how to honor what was learned to move forward.

WHEN/WHERE: Thursday, April 21, 6-7:30 p.m. (PST). JANM, 100 N. Central Ave. To learn more about the event or to RSVP in-person or virtually, go to janm.org/events/2022-04-21/uprising-reflections-92.
