Black Samson

Rockne Tarkington is Black Samson; he’s mean and clean and rules the scene. Samson’s a noble nightclub owner with a steady hand on keeping his neighborhood clear of crime & drugs. He’s got a beautiful lady by his side (Blaxploitation queen Carol Speed), a pet lion (!!!!)  at his bar, and a giant quarterstaff he uses to smack suckers upside their heads. But when vicious white gangster Johnny Napa (William Smith) threatens to muscle in on his turf, Samson will have to unite his community to fight back against the mob.

Sweet Jesus, Preacherman

This preacher never learned to turn the other cheek! When a black hit man (Roger E. Mosley) is sent undercover as a Baptist preacher by his white mob boss (William Smith), he finds that helping the community suites him better than taking orders. It’s a raw and rarely-seen flick from the heyday of Blaxploitation hits that co-stars The Jeffersons’ Marla Gibbs and prolific character actor Michael Pataki. Amen, brother!
