CBS2 anchor Pat Harvey takes a look back at one of the most destructive urban uprisings in American history in a half hour special “Eye on Our Community: The L.A. Riots — 20 Years Later.” 

How far has Los Angeles come in healing the wounds inflicted during the week that it took officials to restore order 20 years ago?

Pat Harvey looks back at what caused the civil unrest and what relationships have changed within Los Angeles among ethnic groups and the LAPD.

The segment features comments from city leaders–among them Operation HOPE Founder John Hope Bryant–who share their forecast of the city’s future. Could a riot like 20 years ago ever happen again? We ask those intimately involved in the community now who were directly effected by the riots in 1992.
