Sterling K. Brown Says L.A. Riots Opened Up Our Eyes but We Still Have Work to Do (VIDEO)

EXCLUSIVE

Sterling K. Brown thinks we've made progress in the 25 years since the L.A. riots ... but there are still huge problems we can't ignore.

As you know, today marks the 25th anniversary since the not guilty verdicts in the Rodney King LAPD police officer trial, which almost immediately triggered the riots.
