Crips and Bloods: Made in America tonight at Rice Media Center

posted by Free Press Houston @ 11:31 AM

This candid film explores the connectivity between 20th century race relations and gang activity today in profound but simple street language. For instance, participation in gangs sharply rose after the vacuum left in the 60's after membership in political groups from Black Panthers to Rainbow Coalition declined. The film recounts experiences and narratives from gang members, rioters, and those who lived in poverty struck areas in these tumultuous times. Distinctions between 'riot's and 'guerrilla warfare' are made that you may have never considered and sharp insights into day to day life in such contexts. In short, go see this film or I am gonna split your wig.

7 p.m. Rice Media Center, 6100 Main. For information, call 713-348-4853 or visit www.ricecinema.rice.edu. Free.
