You are invited to join NatGeo for an Evening of Reflection, Discussion and Action this Sunday, June 7 at 7pm ET / 4pm PT as National Geographic hosts a special online screening of Emmy-winning feature documentary LA 92, followed by a live-streamed, candid conversation on race in America.

The Walt Disney Company has pledged $5 million to support nonprofit organizations that advance social justice, beginning with a $2 million donation to the NAACP to further their longstanding work promoting social justice by eliminating disparities and racial discrimination through their advocacy and education programs.  

Lastly, if you are unable to join NatGeo on Sunday, the film will also broadcast June 6th on National Geographic at 9pm ET/PT and is available for free on YouTube anytime. The conversation will be available beginning Sunday night at 9pm ET on National Geographic’s YouTube Channel.

The past is prologue. As a stunning reminder of the fact that little has changed, National Geographic’s feature documentary LA 92 looks at the events of 1992 from a multitude of vantage points, bringing a fresh perspective to a pivotal moment that clearly still reverberates to this day. Produced by two-time Oscar winner Simon Chinn (“Man on Wire”) and Emmy winner Jonathan Chinn (“American High”) and directed by Oscar winners Dan Lindsay and TJ Martin (“Undefeated”), the film immerses viewers in that tumultuous period through stunning and rarely seen archival footage that is alarmingly similar to what we’ve seen over the past week.
