heron61: (Heron - about me)
After my wonderful friend [livejournal.com profile] shadowmorphic introduced me to the wonderful folk music of Fred Small, I've been listening to more of his work. I recently listened to his song Rodney King's Blessing , which is a speech made by Rodney King during the 1992 LA riots, set to music.

Listening to those words called back 16 year old memories, from when I was living in LA County, just South of Glendale and near Griffith Park, during those riots. Since it was before the internet had anything like it's modern form, and two years before I was on it, I've read few first person accounts of that, and now, much later, I felt like writing one. Here's some of what I remember )
