Charlie Rose Show, November 2, 2007
Discussion about the film "American Gangster" with Frank Lucas, Richie Roberts, Mark Jacobson & Nicholas Pileggi.
Frank Lucas is the gangster himself, played by Denzel Washington in the film. Richie Roberts is the cop who took him down, played by Russell Crowe.



The release of this movie has also prompted Frank Lucas' daughter, Francine Lucas-Sinclair, to tell her story. For years, she hid the fact that her father was a drug lord. Today Francine works with kids whose parents are in prison. She has formed an organization called Yellow Brick Roads, which helps kids deal with the loneliness and emotional chaos they face.
