This was a series of six-day riots that resulted in 34 deaths, 1,032 injuries, and 3,438 arrests. At this time, Los Angeles did not have outright segregation like the South, but it did have racial restrictive covenants which prevented blacks and Hispanics from buying in certain areas. The inciting incident of the race riots was the arrest of Marquette Fry. He was pulled over by a white police officer on the suspicion of driving while intoxicated. Everything escalated when Marquette's brother and mother got involved. Soon a crowd gathered and began throwing things at the officers. At the end of the day, 29 people had been arrested. This was the beginning of the six day riots.
