Long Haul oral history project--May's topic: The Rodney King Rebellion in the Bay Area
Date Sunday May 20
Time 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Location Details

Event Type Panel Discussion
Organizer/AuthorJesse Palmer
A discussion with people who were there recalling what happened and how lessons we might have learned then could apply to the struggle now.

In 1992, thousands took to the streets in the Bay Area after Rodney King's police attachers were found not guilty by an all-white jury. San Francisco police arrested 1400 people and the mayor declared a citywide 9 pm curfew in the face of widespread looting and outrage.

May's Long Haul oral history project will explore what happened with people who participated. The oral history project happens at Long Haul the third Sunday of every month.
