Def want to check this out. The Roots are a big part of the reason. Also I want to check out newcomers SonnyMoon and Gary Clark Jr. . Never did Reggae Day before, but singing “It Wasn’t Me”out loud and slow winin’ to Collie Buddz doesn’t sound like a bad idea. Plus the food they serve is a perk too!

It’s a trip seeing these historical pics. Some of the most well known intersections/areas in l.a. were on fire, in total chaos, and filled with people in full rage and fear.
NEWS, ARCHIVE: 20th Anniversary of L.A. Riots - Now and Then by Ted Soqui
It’s been 20 years since LAPD officers were acquitted of beating Rodney King —- and the subsequent rioting that paralyzed the city.
Much has changed in the urban landscape of Los Angeles: Where there was once a building in flames, there is now a shopping mall. Where there were blocks of rubble, there is now a school.
Award-winning photographer Ted Soqui has revisited the spaces he photographed almost 20 years ago, documenting how Los Angeles has moved beyond the riots of 1992.
