African American taxi driver Rodney King was severely beaten by
Los Angeles police officers on this day in 1991 during an arrest 
that followed a pursuit through the streets of Los Angeles. The
scene was captured on amateur video, one of the first police 
brutality videos of its kind. It forever changed the conversation
about police and race in America.

On this day in 1965, Malcolm X was assassinated in New York City at
the age of 39 by assassins identified as Black Muslims. He was about
to address the OAAU in Manhattan’s Audubon Ballroom when a man
in the 400-person audience rushed forward and shot him once in the 
chest with a sawed-off shotgun as two other men charged the stage
firing semi-automatic handguns. Malcolm X was pronounced dead at
3:30 pm, shortly after arriving at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital.

On this day in 1972, President Richard M. Nixon arrived in China for
an official trip. He was the first U.S. president to visit the People’s Republic of China since it was established in 1949. This was an
important event because the United States was seeking to improve relations with a Communist country during the Cold War.
