Website

Grigsby Bates, Karen. “When LA Erupted In Anger: A Look Back At The Rodney King Riots.” NPR.org, National Public Radio, 26 Apr. 2017, www.npr.org/2017/04/26/524744989/when-la-erupted-in-anger-a-look-back-at-the-rodney-king-riots.
• National Public Radio takes a look back 25 years after the Rodney King riots and explains the impact that they had on the United States.

Most of my sources are published during the 1990s, so I think this will be beneficial in adding a source that looks at the event from a different point of view instead of writing about it shortly after it occurred.
