Video Description

"Greedmont TV presents a documentary by Corey Davis on a group crack addicts in Atlanta who live outside in a small cove behind a Texaco, infamously dubbed as the ""Living Room."" They share their stories and tell us what it's like to battle with a deadly addiction to crack-cocaine. ""Growing up I never had a father, because he was out running the streets getting high... Right around the time I was born, the mid 80′s, African-American communities across the country was struck by the crack epidemic. Which robbed us our prideful culture and instantly perverted it into a counter-culture where playgrounds became warzones and families were destroyed."" [Directed by Corey Davis]

""Gritty and inspiring"" -Damon Dash
