I just noticed how "American Gangster" didn't do a follow up of Frank Lucas's life like the movie "Blow" did with George Jung. I did some research and found out that 3 years after his 15 years of jail time, he was arrested for trying to exchange an ounce of heroin and $13,000 for a kilogram of cocaine. He fought in court with his previous prosecuting attorney by his side but ended up doing 7 more years in jail (light for a man who had been convicted twice for a similar crime). At his release, Roberts contacted Lucas and offered his help to straighten out Franks life. Frank Lucas returned to a devastated Harlem to witness the poverty and squalor, caused in part by his drug business. For possibly the first time, he began to realize how destructive his enterprise had been to individuals and an entire community. Lucas repented, saying, "I did some terrible things...I'm awfully sorry that I did them. I really am." As a result, he has spent much of his remaining life working to repair the damage he caused. He joined efforts with his daughter's non-profit organization, Yellow Brick Roads, which provides a safe haven for children of incarcerated parents. I feel like that would've been a great addition to the end credits but I guess they know what sells, not me. I just thought that was interesting and thought I'd share.
