To help explain the rioting in Los Angeles, The Times will be publishing these sections this week:
On Tuesday, The Times will revisit the emotional images of the riot to feel the scope of the chaos.
On Wednesday, a section will look at the turmoil through the words of participants to hear what was going through their minds and what lessons were learned.
On Thursday, essays will try to examine what has happened to the image and sense of Los Angeles as a multicultural city, to give a sense of how we see ourselves and how others see us.
On Friday, The Times invites public policy analysts and citizens to discuss what we need to do.
