A beloved South Bronx matriarch and former “First Lady” of the Savage Skulls gang struggles to remain visible in a rapidly gentrifying community she helped rebuild in the 1980s. With one foot firmly grounded in the outlaw life and the other as an activist and spiritual advisor, Lorine Padilla straddles the complexities of multiple worlds. Never-before-seen archives of the borough that gifted the world both salsa and hip-hop culture illustrate the history and resilience of the Bronx.
