// Uprising: Hip Hop and the L.A. Riots
[this post is English only]
Uprising: Hip Hop and the L.A. Riots is a VH1-documentary which explores in very detail the animus between African-Americans and the LAPD. This documentary of writer-director Mark Ford marks the 20th anniversary of the widespread unrest unleashed by the “not guilty” verdict after Rodney King was beaten on the 29th of April in 1992. It captures the complexity and history of the hate and anger and what the role of (hip hop) music was during this powerfully community discontent. A must see.
Documentary was aired in the US on the first of May 2012. You can watch it here:
