Aquil Basheer, a former Black Panther, leads ex-gang members and community outreach workers through a 16-week curriculum recently adopted by the Los Angeles City Council. The mission is peace, and their method is changing the violent mindsets of influential gang members one person at a time. The result? Hundreds fewer murders per year, with 87 warring neighborhoods communicating and negotiating peace agreements that can stop the bloodshed before it starts. Aquil's teaching method is being adopted in cities throughout the world, and now, you can see it in practice in your own home.
