Brothers Anthony and Vito Giacalone, the public faces of the Detroit Mafia for years, were suspects in the disappearance of ex-Teamster boss Jimmy Hoffa. 

The Hoffa murder has gotten renewed attention with the new Netflix movie, "The Irishman," which provides a narrative about how ex-Teamster boss Jimmy R. Hoffa was murdered. The film stars Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci and Al Pacino and has been nominated for 10 Oscars, including best picture and best director (Martin Scorsese). 

Alan Bradley, aka " Al Profit," put together a 10-minute video history of Giacalone brothers, who were part of the Italian Mafia, and black Detroit gangsters who worked with them including Chester Campbell and "Big Frank Nitti" Usher. 

Bradley has directed, and edited numerous crime documentary films that can be found on YouTube.
