Join us for a movie screening of L.A. Burning: The Riots 25 Years Later and a pre-recorded panel discussion with Dr. Julia Lee (LMU associate professor of English) and Eric Deggans (NPR TV critic) to address the media representations of race during the civil unrest in Los Angeles in the aftermath of the Rodney King verdict. Lee describes her experience as the daughter of Korean immigrants whose store was burned during the uprising. Deggans describes his experience covering the unrest and its impact in Pittsburgh, where he was one of the few Black reporters working at the local newspaper. Lee and Deggans then have a conversation about the protests following George Floyd's murder and the need for media outlets to diversify their ranks and coverage.
