Shattered Dreams

Shattered Dreams

This is the amazing story of the 1960s Conservative Vice Lords and one of greatest, and most tragic, missed opportunities in the history of Chicago. You can take a tour of the history of Lawndale and the transformation of the CVL and learn how street kids can tun their lives around and work to save their community. There is also a link to a 15 minute special from the History Channel.
