Rodney King

first name: Heloise Forbes

statistic: Rodney King riots – 53 deaths

chosen: There’s a single grain of rice to represent Rodney King in the Birmingham show and the description on the wall says he was beaten to death by police officers – this isn’t true, he survived, but people did die during the riots that ensued when the officers were acquitted.

THANK YOU HELOISE FOR SPOTTING OUR ERROR
