Petey Greene is one bad mutha...*shut yo mouth*...but I'm talkn' 'bout Petey Green?!
Earlier tonight I watched a doc on Independent Lens about Petey Greene. I wasn't that familiar with him before tonight but the guy's just amazing. He went from a life of drug addiction and crime to become a major media personality/community activist in Washington DC. He was really confrontational and in-your-face but, at the same time, came off as the wacky black uncle I never had. Really compelling stuff.
