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.

Aqeela's epiphanies led to his creating Amer-I-Can and the Reverence Movement, models for urban peace.
