This Ain’t Normal is an Emmy nominated and award-winning documentary film that lasers in on this national crisis of gangs in major cities, introducing five young men, each with wrenching histories, and a proven Boston intervention model to help these endangered youngsters exit gangs. The street mentors reveal their own stories of gang life, jail and trauma. With the street cred to win their young proteges’ trust, they redirect these youths to education, job training, and counseling. The take-away? As disastrous as gang violence is across U.S. cities, This Ain’t Normal unveils a workable solution, one that can lower the toll of jail terms, gun violence, high homicides rates and help inner-city youth survive and thrive.
