Shake and Signify – The two Latin Kings in the background show the gang handshake, which mimics the points of a crown. The one in the foreground is “signifying.” Signifying is a sign of recognition. It says, “I belong to the Latin Kings.” When strangers met on a street, they would signify as a way of telling friend from foe.

A passion for photography and curiosity about the neighborhood drew Chicagoan Bob Rehak to Uptown. Over the course of four years, he captured what everyday life was like for neighborhood residents during the mid-1970s. Those photographs—now 40 years old—are being shared in a new book. We talk with the photographer and author.

BY ORLANDO DEURAS       My name is Orlando, my friends call me “O” and my brothers know me and address me as King Cubia. My induction into the Latin King Nation took place at Washington Correction Facility on August 16, 1993. My crown was named “King Angelico” which is still active and is the 3rd Supreme

How Latin Kings operate is simple: in the beginning you’re reeled in with the beauty that comes with the unification between you and your own kind, then that’s reinforced with the security that comes with unifying with your own kind, and so on and so on.
