ZAR Entertainment is all about turning cons and ex cons into youth activists. With its young adult novels and comics Gangster Chronicles, it allows Gangsters to share their stories in the hopes of keeping youth out jail and off the streets.

Founder and CEO Zacharia Ali is dedicated to giving these men a platform to tell their stories. A common theme amongst the books, blogs, articles and movies is crime activity - as perpetrated by individuals, gangs and governments. Gangster Chronicles offers readers a unique look into the once lavish lives and notorious identities of some of the most highly publicized gangsters. Some of the most noteworthy authors of the Gangster Chronicles series include Marvin Ellison and Rudy Williams.
