Rodney King today did an early morning visit to KJLH-FM’s “The Front Page” show with Dominique DiPrima and Carl Nelson.

During the show, which airs Monday through Friday from 4:30 a.m. to 6 a.m. on Radio Free 102.3 FM, he spoke about forgiveness and moving on in his life.

King took the opportunity to promote his book “The Riot Within: My Journey From Rebellion To Redemption.” He has been doing media interviews for the past several weeks talking about his life since a video camera captured the brutal beating four police officers inflicted on him more than 20 years ago.

You can read about his conversation with KPCC’s Patt Morrison during a panel held on Saturday, April 21 during the LA Times Festival of Books here.

King will be in Leimert Park tonight at 7 pm for a book signing at Eso Won Bookstore, located at 4327 Degnan Avenue.
