The Mayme A. Clayton Library and Museum, in association with the Watts Towers Arts Center, will be commemorating the 50th anniversary of the 1965 Watts Riots with a variety of programs in August. Here is an opportunity to revisit the uprising and learn from its aftermath as America in 2015 continues to struggle with the prevalence of African American victims of police brutality, demands for civil rights and equal justice, and institutional racism.
