Category: Legacy Project, Video


Sang Soo Park, born in 1929, recounts the days in Korea when everyone was starving and his immigration to the United States to join his brother who worked at a chemical factory. Unfortunately, his brother eventually passed away from kidney failure and Mr. Park eventually made his way to Atlanta, where he managed a grocery store. It was at this store that he experienced the Rodney King riots that affected not only LA but Atlanta as well.
