Lot 26. Rodney King. (1965-2012). African-American construction worker who became well known after being beaten harshly by Los Angeles police officers following a high-speed car chase on March 3, 1991. The acquittals of the officers are generally considered to have triggered the 1992 Los Angeles riots, in which 53 people were killed, and over two thousand were injured. The riots ended only after soldiers from the United States Army National Guard, along with United States Marines from nearby Camp Pendleton, California, were called in to assist local authorities and quell the riots.

4x3 bookplate signed with his famous quote: "Rodney King. Can we all get along."

In very good condition.
