Attorney Mediator & Zen Meditation Instructor
Angela E. Oh came to prominence in 1992 after the civil unrest that followed the acquittal of four Los Angeles police officers charged with the beating of Rodney King. As a second generation Korean American born in Los Angeles, trained as a criminal defense lawyer, active in civil rights and civil liberties organizing, Oh found that her experiences gave insight into the causes of what was recorded as the worst civil disaster of the century. In speaking out, her clarity about the political, economic, social, and institutional failures that contributed to the implosion of 1992 resonated with communities across the region. Over 2000 small family owned businesses owned by ethnic Koreans were destroyed and Oh challenged the mainstream media narrative that the crisis in Los Angeles was due to Korean and African American conflict.

"Angela was awesome to say the least!!!!! She got a standing ovation and she caused some healing to take place and some were moved to tears. One woman in particular came to me to thank me for bringing Angela to the conference and to IBM. In her particular case, she had been dealing with a personal problem and hearing Angela speak brought her to a point to acknowledge her problem. She has reached a new level of peace with herself--this woman was sobbing; she is so grateful to Angela. Please pass on my appreciation for a wonderful, healing, inspirational and soul-searching speech."
"The evaluations were very enthusiastic and her books sold out in about 10 minutes. She was great."
