April 29, 1992, the city of Los Angeles erupted after a jury acquitted several police officers of beating Rodney King. Neighborhoods in south-central LA were on fire, stores were looted and 55 people were killed. It's been ten years....what's changed? Join Neal Conan on the next Talk of the Nation, a look at race and violence ten years after the LA riots, from NPR News.
