Michael Wilpon remembers the ‘Surreal’ summit where NFL legend Jim Brown united the Crips and Bloods

Jim Brown passed away on May 18, 2023 at the age of 87. The former NFL player’s death has led to many stories being remembered – both good and bad – about the polarizing icon. This includes ESPN’s Michael Wilpon telling the story of the time Brown invited members of rival Los Angeles street gangs, the Crips and the Dudes, to his home for a “surreal” and peaceful summit during the 1992 Los Angeles riots.

Brown is a very complex character who has lived an amazing life. This included being the greatest kicker in NFL history, an outstanding civil rights leader for the black community, and a Hollywood actor. It also included multiple arrests for acts of violence, including several against women.
