Thirty years ago, white Los Angeles police officers savagely beat Rodney Glen King, a young Black man who had led them on a high-speed chase through the city. After a jury failed to convict four police officers, despite a graphic videotape of the beating, the city erupted into violence. This season of Slate's Slow Burn podcast dives into the events of early 1990s Los Angeles and the decades of police brutality and injustice that led to them. We'll talk with host Joel Anderson about the characters, context and legacy of the biggest U.S. civil disturbance of the 20th century.

In the weeks after the video aired, L.A.'s most powerful institutions joined together to call for an end to Gates' career and the style of policing that had resulted in King's beating.  But even with much of the city's political leadership unified against him, Gates was ready for a fight.

This week, host Isaac Butler talks to documentary filmmaker Stanley Nelson, whose latest film, ATTICA, covers the 1971 uprising at the Attica Correctional Facility in upstate New York. In the interview, Stanley explains how he decides which stories to tell and how he earns the trust of his subjects. He also discusses the finer points of structure, editing, and his use of sound effects and music.  After the interview, Isaac and co-host Karen Han talk about the challenges of creating a structure for nonfiction projects and the difficult task of cutting interviews down.  In the exclusive Slate Plus segment, Stanley looks back at the time he worked with legendary documentary filmmaker William Greaves.

Last Friday, a surging crowd killed at least eight people and left hundreds injured at Travis Scott's music festival Astroworld in Houston. Public uproar over the needless deaths has placed responsibility at the rapper's feet - and at those of police officers who failed to intervene and shut the show down. How did Scott's signature “raging” spill over into a mass casualty event? And how do we tease out blame between Scott himself, and the way music festivals are run?  Guest: Tom Breihan, senior editor at Stereogum.  If you enjoy this show, please consider signing up for Slate Plus.

In March 1991, the video of the Rodney King beating was national news. The LAPD was under intense scrutiny and many white Americans were seeing a side of policing they'd never seen before. Just a few days after George Holliday's tape aired, the residents of South Central, Los Angeles were forced to confront yet another devastating act of violence. How did a deadly altercation at a convenience store set off a battle between Los Angeles' Black residents and its immigrant shopkeepers? And how did the justice system respond? Season 6 of Slow Burn is produced by Joel Anderson, Jayson De Leon, Ethan Brooks, Sophie Summergrad, and Jasmine Ellis.  Mixing by Merritt Jacob.

While the effort might eventually result in less visible homelessness in some parts of the city, critics say it might be more in service of political gain than anything else.

Minneapolis voters have rejected a referendum to dissolve and replace their police department by a dramatic 12-point margin. The election result reflects a different mood from what the city saw a year ago, when protesters booed the mayor for resisting the movement to defund the police. Why were the planned police reforms so unpopular in the city where George Floyd's murder sparked an international movement for justice? And what lessons should activists for and against the measure take from this moment?  Guest: Jon Collins, senior reporter for MPR News.  If you enjoy this show, please consider signing up for Slate Plus.
