Stan Williams co-founded the L.A. Crips in 1971. In 1981, he was convicted of murder by a jury from which all Blacks had been removed. Standing before a racist system, without adequate funds or competent counsel, he had no real chance of demonstrating his innocence during his trial.

While in prison, Stan began writing books de-glamorizing gangs and prison life for children and young adults. Because of this work, he has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize five times.
