A bit about Aqeela...
Aqeela Sherrills transformed retaliation into reconciliation and helped broker peace between Los Angeles gangs, the Bloods and the Crips. Aqeela's eldest son, Terrell, was murdered in a gang-related incident. Rather than choose revenge, he deepened his commitment to peacebuilding, by encouraging others to face their own wounds, forgive themselves and others, and experience conflict as opportunity. Aqeela's epiphanies led to his creating Amer-I-Can and the Reverence Movement, models for urban peace.
