archives of the Conservative Vice Lords of the 1960s are being
digitized to preserve their history.
Funded by the Illinois
Humanities Council, this project aims to tell the
the youth of Lawndale and the public about a gang who turned
the energy of the streets into a powerful and positive social
and economic tool.
The archives are being digitized, but as a profile of the
Vice Lords and a sample of the rich material in the archives,
gangresearch.net presents the entire text of the 1969 Vice
to the Public in a digital slideshow.
