This is Collective Memory, a podcast about history, collective consciousness, and the forces that drive current events. I’m your host, Nick Gatlin. This episode is part three of a three-part series on protest, civil unrest, and police response in the United States. Today, we’re talking about two of the most disruptive incidents in Los Angeles history: the 1965 Watts Riots, and the 1992 Rodney King Riots.
