Political Perspectives on 06/20/12
Carlos Chavez presents part two of the Watts Gang Truce Anniversary program on Political Perspectives. Part one aired last week with a powerful panel discussion titled, Pioneers in Peace. It featured voices from "Freeway" Ricky Ross, the honorable Orland Bishop of Mosaic, Alex Sanchez of Homies Unidos and others. Check out the following link to listen or download that program:
This week features one of the founders of the peace treaty, who found himself under fire for helping to create this movement in 1992. His name is Dewayne Holmes from the Imerial Courts housing projects. We'll also hear other voices from the Watts community as they share their reflections on how the gang truce changed their lives.
