TWILIGHT: LOS ANGELES, 1992  is Anna Deavere Smith's look at the people affected by Los Angeles' Rodney King Riots. 

Crafted in the style of a documentary, each monologue is a glimpse into the mind of someone deeply connected to the King Riots. From police officers and public figures to citizens and angry protesters, we hear the personal stories of what L.A. experienced on that day in April when the King verdicts were read.
