Columbia’s Nickelodeon Theatre screened “LA 92,” a film examining race and the media after the Rodney King trial.

The film concluded with a discussion panel led by Claudia Smith Brinson, former Columbia College media writing professor, and Kenneth Campbell, head associate professor of Mass Communications at USC.

Directed by Daniel Lindsay and T.J. Martin, “LA 92” blueprints the Rodney King trial that acquitted four officers of the Los Angeles Police Department in 1992.  “LA 92” examines the results of race and its representation in the American media, as thousands of people rioted over a six-day period following the announcement of the verdict. “LA 92” was the sixth film to be screened from the “For the Record” series.
