Summary
"On March 3, 1991, an African-American man was brutally beaten by four white Los Angeles police officers who stopped him for speeding. On April 29, 1992, when the jury's 'not guilty' verdict dismissed the officers on trial for the assault, the city ignited into three days of rioting, looting and violence that left neighborhoods smoldering. 'Twilight--Los Angeles,' adapted from Anna Deavere Smith's searing one-woman play, captures this tumultuous and challenging moment in America's race relations."--Container
