This chapter focuses on the resurgence of the Underground Musicians and Artists Association (UGMAA) and Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra (PAPA) in the 1990s. It describes the effect of the 1992 uprising, a multiracial reaction to accumulating social and economic inequalities and injustices, on the organizations. It explains that while the uprising did little to alter the economic status quo, it did to some extent lift the torpid social atmosphere of the 1980s and galvanized the community's artists. The community arts movement of South Central Los Angeles was also rejuvenated.

Keywords:   1992 uprising, economic inequalities, community arts movements, Los Angeles
