Some readers might remember one of my first web pages on this website – an interview I did with “Jocko,” a former member of the Harlem Lords. Jocko’s ire was raised because of Tom Skinner, who wrote a book and became fairly well-known for being in the Harlem Lords only to leave the gang and become a Christian. According to Jocko, Skinner was never in the gang. To see that interview, click here.
As can be seen from that page, a comic book was made on Tom Skinner’s life (he has since passed away), called “Up From Harlem.” Below is the comic book from beginning to end.
