In the spring of 1991, Rodney King was beaten by four Los Angeles police officers after a high-speed chase. A bystander's video footage of the assault was broadcast nationally. A year later, the officers were acquitted of all charges and rioting ensued in Los Angeles. 53 people died and thousands were injured. Galvez traveled the affected areas following the riots and recorded the aftermath.
