FACULTY IN THE NEWS

National Public Radio

Re: Jody David Armour

Jody Armour was interviewed about how protests have changed since the protests following the acquittal of four police officers in 1992 for the Rodney King beating. "My sense of where the protests can go from here, hopefully will go from here, is we’ll have a serious reckoning with the racial injustice that has provoked and continues to provoke these kinds of eruptions," he said. Armour was also quoted about the subject in New York Times, NBC Los Angeles and KCRW Press Play.
