‘Voices of a Movement’ premiere and Q&A with Lora King
Tuesday, February 7, 2023
Noon – 1 p.m. PT
Wallis Annenberg Hall (ANN), Forum
Join the USC Charlotta Bass Journalism & Justice Lab for the Voices of a Movement series with special guest Lora King. King is the daughter of Rodney King, founder of the Rodney King Foundation, and the inaugural subject of the Lab’s groundbreaking oral history collection titled The Second Draft Project. The project centers Black Americans who are connected to pivotal moments in our nation’s fight for social justice by inviting them to illuminate, and even correct, history’s often skewed record. King will be in conversation with Allissa V. Richardson, founding director of the Bass Lab. Together they will premiere elements of King’s virtual human interview which provides an eye-witness account of the immediate aftermath of her father’s brutal police assault, his impact on the world, and how she’s carrying on his legacy.
