Enlightening.
22 May 2017 | by techsquadcomSee all my reviews

I thought this documentary was excellent. I watched it with my father who grew up at 118th & Central (1946). I later lived at the same address with my Grandparents. I remember the second uprising but knew little about the first. I appreciate the film maker for composing this documentary. I will not spoil, but in my opinion the late, great Mayor Tom Bradley had the best quote in this documentary. It is worth it to watch this documentary just to hear his quote.
