A Nation of Lords is a story about the beginning of the Vice Lord Gang. The gang was establihed in nineteen fifty eight but the gang was violent in those day all the way until nineteen sixty four. The gang murder rival gang members such as the Cobras back in those days. By the year 1964 the gang started cleaning up their community opening up business so the youth can have job opportunites and develop some skills. Everything was working out for them and the Vice Lord hand one white gang leader that also help bring in jobs. In 1969 the federal government war on gangs dismantle the organization one leader was put in jail for being accused of killing somebody. By the time the early seventies hit all of their hard work diminished and the cocaine era ruined the Lawndale community in Chicago, Illinois. I reccomend this book to anyone who want to really know what gangs were like back in those days killing disappeared and gang leaders built up thier communities instead of runied them.
