Legacy Project: SaIGu LA Riots – Carol Kim

Category: Legacy Project, Original Video, SaIGu LA Riots, Video


Carol Kim was a graduating high school senior when the LA riots broke out, but she was already a leader committed to overturning injustice. Frustrated by white journalists’ coverage of the LA riots, she sent out a call and mobilized a large crowd of Korean Americans to protest outside the local TV station–and the crowd grew so large that the TV station sent a reporter to address the situation. Carol encourages people of all communities to respond to current social justice issues because we are all part of one larger community.
