Ving Rhames narrates this documentary series that explores the lives of African-American criminal masterminds and their rise to power. With an eye toward the facts, and the impact on communities, AMERICAN GANGSTER offers an unromantic yet always fascinating look at these complicated individuals. Among those examined here are the Philly Black Mafia, who used Islam and race as a cover for their campaign of terror; heroin kingpin Melvin Williams, the inspiration behind the TV series THE WIRE; prolific bank-robber Chaz Williams, who takes the viewers on a tour of his life in crime; and John Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo, better known as the D.C. Snipers. Collected here are all 10 episodes of the enthralling second season.
