This video is the eighth of 11 #SaIGu #LARiots stories we will publish in 11 days to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of SaIGu (4-29 LA Riots). Joe Ahn recalls feeling both fear and anger during SaIGu: fear that his father would get hurt during the riots, and anger that the people who were most affected by the public's expressed frustration with the government were the people who had the least resources. As businesses went bankrupt in #Koreatown, new laws were created that effectively made it very difficult for the common types of Korean-owned businesses to reopen. Joe Ahn played a critical role in helping to pass a revitalization act that included components such as: loans and tax credits for Korean-owned businesses.

This video is the seventh of 11 #SaIGu #LARiots stories we will publish in 11 days to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of SaIGu (4-29 LA Riots). Richard Choi is the current vice chairman of Radio Korea, and was the vice president of Radio Korea in 1992. He recalls the shift in mindset during the LA riots: from one of survival to one of protecting Koreatown, Los Angeles and the community. He explains the central role that Radio Korea had during SaIGu and beyond: receiving and relaying information related to emergencies, fires, and looting during a time described as being “like a war zone.” The process of setting up a temporary FEMA Federal Emergency Management Agency center beautifully illustrates how the many different parts of the Korean American community came together during a time of crisis to support and serve one another. Recorded in LA in partnership with Hyepin Im of Kccd Kccd, Korean Churches for Community Development.

SAIGU Commemoration Service for 25th Anniv. of the L.A Riots

Apr 29, 3:00pm

Oriental Mission Church

The SAIGU Campaign for the 25th Anniversary of the Los Angeles Riots will revisit the tragic chapter of Los Angeles’ history for the purpose of celebrating unity by hosting various events leading up to a closing commemorative service on April 29, 2017. Almost twenty-five years ago, Los Angeles was torn and divided by the LA Riots that resulted in over 3,600 fires, 2,300 businesses destroyed, 53 lives lost, and over $1 billion in property damage (50% were incurred by Korean Americans.) With an expected gathering of over 1,200 attendees, those attending will include from local, state, and national elected officials, celebrities, law enforcement agencies, faith leaders, community leaders, business leaders, ex-gang members, victims and those affected by the LA Riots.

This video is the fifth of 11 #SaIGu #LARiots stories we will publish in 11 days to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of SaIGu (4-29 LA Riots). TC Kim, a journalist in 1992, hit the streets to capture photos during the LA riots, even though his wife asked him to stay home. Despite being chased at one point by angry looters who noticed his camera, TC remained committed to his work as a journalist. While he has been personally and profoundly affected by the losses and grief of SaIGu, TC remains hopeful of the progress that has been and will be made. He notes that among many different organizations founded in 1993, the year after the riots, the #LAPD launched the Community Police Advisory Board (C-PAB), which facilitates direct communication, connection, and collaboration between the police and leaders in the community. Recorded in LA in partnership with Hyepin Im of Kccd Kccd, Korean Churches for Community Development.

This video is the fourth of 11 #SaIGu #LARiots stories we will publish in 11 days to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of SaIGu (4-29 LA Riots). Carol Kim was a graduating high school senior when the LA riots broke out, but she was already a leader committed to overturning injustice. Frustrated by white journalists' coverage of the LA riots, she sent out a call and mobilized a large crowd of Korean Americans to protest outside the local TV station--and the crowd grew so large that the TV station sent a reporter to address the situation. Carol encourages people of all communities to respond to current social justice issues because we are all part of one larger community.

This video is the third of 11 #SaIGu #LARiots stories we will publish in 11 days to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of SaIGu (4-29 LA Riots). Commander Blake Chow is Assistant Commanding Officer - Operations West Bureau, Los Angeles Police Department (#LAPD). Commander Chow recalls how he, as a young police officer in 1992, was called in for a nearly impossible task: to stop the thousands of people who were looting stores, and protect the firefighters who were trying to save stores and lives. He emphasizes that since the time of the LA riots, the LAPD has changed its paradigm about how it works and communicates with various communities (Korean American, African American, Hispanic, LGBTQ), which has improved their relationships. Recorded in LA in partnership with Hyepin Im of Kccd Kccd, Korean Churches for Community Development.

This is the second of 11 #SaIGu #LARiots stories we will publish in 11 days to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of SaIGu (4-29 LA Riots). Jinho Lee, journalist at Radio Korea (KBLA-AM 1580) in 1992, recalls how Radio Korea became a makeshift command center during the LA riots. Korean Americans called the radio for help, information, and resources, after realizing there was no response from the police and fire department. Jinho believes that the root issue behind the LA riots was that the government neglected South Central LA, but is hopeful that people have learned from their mistakes. He urges Korean Americans to continue to become educated and involved in politics, and to learn from the Black community how to have a strong voice.
