In the spring of 1992, riots erupted in Los Angeles after white police officers were found not guilty of felony assault in the beating of Rodney King, an African-American man. Oprah took her show to the middle of the firestorm for a town hall discussion about race. Twenty years later—just months before his death—Rodney shared how he turned the assault into a positive, and talked about life with his fiancée, Cynthia.
