WW LA: Garth Trinidad with Roger Guenveur Smith // 03-05-17

WW LA welcomes back Garth Trinidad, a key influencer in the musical landscape of Los Angeles, for a special segment live from Red Gate Recorders in Highland Park, LA.

Garth interviews Roger Guenveur Smith – actor, performer and one man force behind ‘Rodney King’, captured on film by Oscar winner Spike Lee.

Roger brings a performance of a lifetime giving powerful voice to Rodney King, the man at the centre of the brutal police beating that fuelled the 1992 LA riots, released around the anniversary of the event.
