Accepted for his fast mouth and sense of humour, Dom soon becomes one the boys.

The peace documentary “The Block” is produced by three Woolman Semester students— Carlos Madrigal of Oakland, California, Anna Seifert of Marshall, Michigan and Colman Lee of Greenfield, Massachusetts—for their Peace Studies project during the semester of Fall 2011. This documentary challenges the conventional wisdom about gangs and asks us to consider the possibility that gangs could be a force for peace and justice in neighborhoods. The Block will take you on a journey to the streets of Oakland, where gangs make the rules.
