The verdict hit the airwaves and the eyes of the nation descended on the city that made superstars out of attorneys.As an African-American recent college graduate living and working in the city, that verdict had a profound effect on me and the life I made for myself.

Lives were changed. Alliances were formed. Mistrust became the rule, not the exception.

No one bothered to ask the right questions. We were clumped together as if our stories were one and the same.From the horrific Rodney King assault, to the unsettling residuum following the O.J. Simpson verdict, my life changed in profound ways.Hear actual words spoken by Nicole Brown Simpson, O.J. Simpson, Detective Mark Fuhrman and others through original court transcripts, to see how my opinions were formed, and to possibly, rethink your own.___________________________________________________________SCROLL UP AND BUY NOW!
