"The focus of the Haggerty exhibition, Watts: Art and Social Change in Los Angeles, 1965 to 2002, is the response of African-American artists and others living in Los Angeles during this period, who offered an alternative to the rioters’ militant actions. Their projects represent a particular kind of experiment linking art and social change that has not been duplicated in the other centers of urban crisis."
