In 1992, in the midst of the LA riots, Oprah moved her show to Los Angeles to tackle the ongoing fallout of the Rodney King verdict. The result? One of the most memorable - and boisterous - Oprah episodes.

Special guest: Elizabeth Hinton, historian and author of “America on Fire: The Untold History of Police Violence and Black Rebellion Since the 1960s”
