Are most politicians merely marionettes that dance to the popular tunes while they skirt the most delicate issues? How many of our political leaders today cower, marching to the drumbeat of truth? In The King of Compton! The Assassination of a Dream, meet OMAR BRADLEY, a man who grew up trapped in the shadow of despair associated with his blackness. His life unfolds before our eyes as a school boy, teenager, college student, teacher, mayor of Compton three times, and finally, resident of the penal system in the state of California. This deeply personal story of the painful struggles of the ex-mayor of Compton will send a chilling message and will provide insight into the seamy side of politics when you get on the wrong side of Big Brother.
