Directed by Jamaa Fanaka | 1976

With Jerri Hayes, Ernest Williams II, Charles D. Brooks III

Fanaka created one of the toughest, most complex, and unexpected black heroines in all of 1970s cinema in Emma Mae, a young Southern woman who moves to LA and undergoes a personal and political transformation. Though it was released under the more exploitation-y title Black Sister’s Revenge (which Emma Mae does get), Fanaka’s naturalistic character study is grounded in a vivid sense of community.
