Chicago gangs are at the centre of the fear, rage, and grief over the astonishing levels of homicide in the city, much of which is concentrated in black neighbourhoods. Native son W. Kamau Bell explores the mythology and the facts of gang violence by attending a City Hall press conference and meeting with various people, including a Black Lives Matter activist and Chicago native Dwayne Wade?s mother - herself a gang member turned pastor. He wraps his visit by sitting down with rival gang-affiliated hip-hop artists in an unprecedented summit that concludes in a way that not even Kamau could have predicted.
