Rodney King was found dead on June 16 in his home swimming pool. He and his fiancée, Cynthia Kelley, were on our show on April 25th, when his memoir, The Riot Within: My Journey from Rebellion to Redemption, was published. He spoke honestly and movingly about the high speed car chase that ended with a brutal police beating in 1991, the resulting trials, healing from his injuries, and dealing with addiction. We're replaying selections from that interview.
