It’s a civil war that’s lasted 40 years. Passed down from son to son. Fought eye for an eye. Over 15,000 dead and counting, while the world stands by. Welcome to South Central Los Angeles. But what’s at the root of this long-standing battle? Filmmaker Stacy Peralta hits the streets of LA to find out, and speaks with former and current members of the Bloods and the Crips, two of the most notorious and violent street gangs in America.
Discussion and Q&A immediately follows the film with: Darryl Coates, Executive Director of the Philadelphia Anti-Drug Anti-Violence Network; Everett Gillison, Deputy Mayor of Public Safety; Dorothy Speight-Johnson, Executive Director of Mothers In Charge; and Jack Stollsteimer, PA Safe Schools Advocate. Moderated by Cliff Akiyama, Lecturer in the Division of Family and Community Health– University of Pennsylvania, School of Nursing
