The riots have begun and in this third chapter of the Angel Fire podcast series, you'll hear about the incredible violence visited on the Korean American community in LA. This podcast will center on Koreatown, LA, and detail the many people who tried to defend their neighborhoods and make peace in the midst of conflict. We talk about the media treatment of Korean Americans and how, when the fires die down and the riots are cover, Korean Americans are battered and bruised, but also perhaps ready for a political awakening. Join us for Chapter 4: Korean America, in a few weeks, where we'll examine the long term consequences of the riots.
