PBS to Air ‘The Cowboys of South Central L.A.’ to Commemorate Juneteenth

Award-winning director and film maker, Brett Fallentine, is a Northern California native who dedicated more than seven years to learn, film, and connect with the rich history of the Compton Cowboys in his documentary, “Fire on the Hill: The Cowboys of South Central L.A.” The film is being released by PBS to commemorate the Juneteenth holiday.

Fallentine explained that his film, “Fire on the Hill,” counters the negative impression that media has about Compton and South Central
