Commemorating the L.A. Uprising

This weekend folk around southern California will be commemorating the 20th anniversary of the 1992 L.A. Uprising.  We did that in our April 24th webinar entitled “No Justice, No Peace: Reflections on Jesus’ Lament over Jerusalem and the 20th Anniversary of the L.A. Uprising.”  It went well, with 25 participants.  I first reflected on my experience last month on Land Day and Palm Sunday in Jerusalem; then looked at Luke’s unique narrative of Jesus’ weeping over Jerusalem (Lk 19:39-44); and concluded with a look back on the largest urban riots in U.S. history (April 29-May 2, 1992).
