Overview
In August 1965, the predominantly black neighbourhood of Watts in Los Angeles, erupted in flames and violence following an incident of police brutality. The official death toll was 34 and property losses reached hundreds of millions of dollars - but the political results were even more profound. The civil rights movement was placed on the defensive as the image of rioting blacks in the West replaced the image of meek protestors in the South. A white backlash ensued, which led directly to the election of Ronald Reagan as governor of California in 1966.
