April 29 marked the 27th anniversary of the LA Riots, in the aftermath of the Rodney King verdict.
The riots were sparked after four officers with the LAPD were acquitted for the vicious beating of King, in an attack that was recorded by a bystander and the footage was broadcast on news outlets around the world.
Now, Lora King, Rodney’s daughter, is honoring her father’s legacy through the launch of her newly established “I AM A KING” Scholarship Program, designed to celebrate Black fathers.
Selected applicants will receive grants to use for bonding outings with children, including dining expenses and entertainment events such as to the museum or Disneyland.
