If you enjoyed learning about Chicago's white gangs of yore, you should learn more about its black gangs, too. Natalie Moore and Lance William discuss their book The Almighty Black P Stone Nation: the Rise, Fall, and Resurgence of an American Street Gang tonight at 6pm at the Blackstone branch of the Chicago Public Library, 4904 S. Lake Park Ave.
