About the Movie

From 1969 to 1975 Eddie Jackson and Courtney Brown ran one of the largest heroin rings in the United States. Grossing 10 million a month in today's dollars, the Eddie Jackson organization is likely the largest drug ring in Detroit's history. Motown Mafia is the story of 2 families and how they rose from Detroit's old Black Bottom and Paradise Valley neighborhoods to the top of the city's narcotics pyramid. Eddie Jackson was cut from a different cloth than men like Leroy "Nicky" Barnes and Frank Lucas. He ruled his empire with strategy more than violence, despite having to ply his trade in America's murder capital - Detroit; Eddie and Courtney also never became federal informants. The "Fat Man" was the most beloved kingpin in history, dispensing favors and throwing money from the windows of his Rolls Royce. Motown Mafia is not just the story of the Jackson and Brown families, but the story of Detroit itself. From the nightlife of Paradise Valley to the intricacies of the heroin trade at its highest level, Motown Mafia is a must have piece of Detroit history.
