They are perhaps best known in Chicano History for their involvement in the Sleepy Lagoon Murder and Trial. Here are members of the gang in San Quentin Prison in 1943. The 38th Street Gang has changed substantially over the years. The gang now numbers over a thousand members across the country. Violence is more brutal and widespread than ever in the gang's history.
