Organized by the USC Annenberg School for Communication, Black on Black revisits the Emmy Award-winning documentary by journalism professor Joe Saltzman 40 years after its premiere. The film examined the devastating aftermath of the riots in South Los Angeles in the mid-1960s.
Following a screening of his film, Saltzman joins University Professor Geoffrey Cowan, communication professor Félix Gutiérrez, and USC Vice Provost Michael Preston for a panel discussion that explores how conditions have changed for African Americans in Los Angeles in the last 40 years.
The USC Annenberg School for Communication and the USC Libraries have selected the following resources to help you learn more about the riots and the transformation of Los Angeles and African American communities since then.
