The Avon Barksdale Story: Legends Of The Unwired (2010)
Discover the incredible true story of the Baltimore drug kingpin who served as the inspiration for a key figure in the first season of The Wire. Back in the 1980s, the Lexington Terrace Projects was one of the most dangerous areas in Baltimore. Much to the chagrin of the local authorities, Nathan Avon "Bodie" Barksdale, owned the streets. In this documentary, Barksdale speaks with actor Wood Harris (who portrayed the drug dealer in The Wire) about his violent past.
