I'm told that this is Big Bob on the front left. He was huge.

Is this the same Big Bob Johnson that had his old photographs on display with Harper Books??. If so He was apart of a photographic exhibit of crip life in the 70's and 80's, earlier this year.

Sorry to report that Bobby Crear (1951 - 2019) died last week. He had been ill for several years. We interviewed him over 6 years ago, and he was the first original Crips to be interviewed on camera during the internet era. He was a Westside Crip. We have two clips below from our interviews with him.
