"MURDER CITY" FROM THE PURPLE GANG TO YOUNG BOYS INC.


MURDER CITY – From the Purple Gang to the Y.B.I.  Since 1970, Detroit has had the highest homicide rate of any major city in America.

The complete history of crime in Detroit, from the bootlegging Purple Gang of the 1920s, the flamboyant Errol Flynns of the 1970s who helped originate gang signs, to the ’80s drug consortium Young Boyz, Inc. and automobile executive John DeLorean’s cocaine scandal.

Part history and part social commentary, this release is essential for any true Detroiter and for urban crime connoisseurs from all over.

From prohibition, the 1943 race riot, the riots of 1967, STRESS and police violence, the Young Boys Inc., and Detroit Mayor Coleman Young. "Murder City" touches every important theme of social disorder in "America's Model City".

Directed by Al Profit and featuring Detroit Emcee seven the general..
