Gang Members Give Back In B-More!

"Black" whose real name is Tony Wilson and a long time member of the Bloods street gang. Wilson is now a Youth counselor with the Rose Street Community Center in Baltimore. On this day, he's lambasting youngsters who choose drug dealing and buying $100,000 cars instead of paying rent and even securing drivers licenses and car insurance. Wilson is giving back by attempting to steer youngsters in the right direction, and even assisting them in securing GED's and taking care of the basic necessities of life such as establishing bank accounts.

Rose Street is being subsidized by a $220,000 federal grant and has the complete support of Baltimore's City Hall. Thank to the Baltimore Sun for the article.
