On this day, 24 years ago, the Los Angeles Times published a story about a rally in Koreatown. Around 700 Korean Americans gathered to support South Korean students, who were demonstrating for democratic reforms in their country.
The original photo was published June 22, 1987, with the caption:
Crowd holds signs in Korean and English at Los Angeles rally to press for democracy in South Korea and support student protesters.
Our Vintage Times series is presented on Tumblr with photography from the Los Angeles Times archives.
