Redemption - Jamie Foxx Interview

Posted on: April 5, 2004 | Views: 115 | Comment

Jamie Foxx discusses Stan "Tookie" Williams' life.

In 1971, 17-year-old Stan "Tookie" Williams founded the Crips street gang in South Central Los Angeles. Since then, countless people's lives have been fraught with danger, fear and sadness due to the gang's activities. The death toll rises daily as the Crips and Crips copycat gangs move around the globe.

After being convicted of several murders as a young man, Tookie spent the majority of his life on Death Row in California. Several years in the pen spurred a painful and personal transformation into a man who valued life: and a man who deeply regretted what he had begotten unto the world.

Tookie reached out to the communities his legacy harmed to try to steer children away from gangs. He wrote books and began an international child-mentoring program, among other things, to show kids the alternatives to gang life. As of yet, the Crips and copycat gangs still dominate streets and neighborhoods the world over.
