Epps delves into the World War II history, when Hunters Point was the home of African American shipyard workers who migrated from Texas and Louisiana in search of better-paying jobs in a less hostile environment. After the war many of the economic and employment opportunities for blacks dwindled, and poverty, unemployment, and crime set in. The film takes you to the recent events of Hunter's Point, and covers the violent conflict between two neighbourhoods from the region, Big Block and Westmob. The two gangs are involved in street crime but both have musical aspirations, producing music and rap artists. There were over 100 shootings between these rival rap labels and the life there is too raw for any of these artists to reach super stardom.Produced and directed by filmmaker Kevin Epps, Straight Outta Hunters Point provides a rare glimpse, from the inside, at the daily racial, economic, and environmental issues confronting the African American residents of San Francisco’s Bayview.
