After recovering from a near fatal shooting in Brownsville Brooklyn, former drug dealer and award-winning journalist Samson Styles searches to find meaning in his life and reconciliation with his shooter, in this meaningful journey that takes the form of a life-lesson told to a young boy.
The film Killing Beef details Samson’s life in the streets and his transformative life experience through the perspective of a young boy. In the film, after the young boy “Christopher Underwood” loses his older brother to gun violence, he seeks out Samson to ask him about his own brush with death and why violence has claimed the life of his brother. The ensuing real conversation develops into a compelling and gripping real life story that ends with Samson seeking reconciliation with the man who almost shot him to death.
This powerful conversation offers the young boy an honest accounting of Samson’s personal story of crime and violence, and helps the boy (and viewers) truly understand the cause, effects and solutions to ending gun violence and -- killing beef.
Cedric the Entertainer as well as many other celebrities understands the significance and impact of Samson' KILLING BEEF documentary and the urgency to decrease the gun violence across the nation. Killing Beef 'Gun Violence in the Black Community' is airing now on REVOLT TV
Samson Styles shares his testimony of prison, drug dealing, violence, reconciliation, redemption and turning his life around at juvenile detention centers, alternative to incarceration programs, middle/high schools and colleges.
