    • Synopsis
    • From 1968 to 1975, gangs ruled New York City. An unrealistic rage lay beyond the idealistic hopes of the civil rights movement.

      Neither law enforcement nor social agency could end the escalating bloodshed. Peace came only through the birth of hip-hop culture, the most unlikely and courageous of events that would change the world for generations to come. Rubble Kings, the most comprehensive documentation to date of life during this era of gang rule, tells the story of how a few extraordinary, forgotten people did the impossible, and how their actions impacted the world over.
