Bobby Lavender explains how he started a Blood gang in Los Angeles

STREETGANGS.COM | April 21, 2013

LOS ANGELES – Back in 1972, Bobby Lavender led a group that created a gang called the 92 Bishops off of 92nd and Bandera Streets after a person named Skip was shot and killed by a member of the East Side Crips, Raymond Washington’s gang.

In 1973, Lavender and other gang leaders went to San Diego to create a peace treaty to end the violence that had recently erupted in 1972 and 1873. This was the first period of increased violence in the Black communities of South Los Angeles.

The Teen Post was very active in gang intervention during the early 1970s and they played active role in the San Diego meeting among Los Angeles gang leaders.

Original Date: 1988
