The New Compton

Hosted by and

Straight Outta Compton, the N.W.A. biopic opens this weekend, but a lot has changed in the city since the 90's and the city is working hard to shed its violent reputation. Compton’s Mayor Aja Brown is optimistic about her city. “At the height of NWA’s success Compton had triple the homicides than we have today, Compton is much safer than it was before,” she says

As part of our series Below the Ten: Life in South LA, producer David Weinberg looks at what it's like to live and work in Compton today.

The series is supported by a grant from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation.
