Tickets go on sale January 24 at 10 a.m. but presale begins January 21 at 10 a.m.

Dr. Brenda E. Stevenson, UCLA history professor and scholar, will speak about her latest book “The Contested Murder of Latasha Harlins,” which hypothesizes that the 15-year-old murder in a South Central LA store foreshadowed the tension in the Black community, which erupted months later following the acquittal of the LAPD officers involved in the Rodney King beating. Books will be on hand for sale and signing. This event is free and open to the public. CAAM is located at 600 State Drive, Exposition Park, Los Angeles, CA 90037.
