Directed by Ivan Dixon | 1973

With Lawrence Cook, Paula Kelly, Janet League

Arguably one of the most radical, anti-white-supremacy statements in film history, this explosive adaptation of the novel by Sam Greenlee follows a disillusioned black CIA agent (Cook) who goes rogue and uses his specialized training to build a guerrilla army intent on government overthrow. So potent is the film’s call to revolution that for decades all prints of it were suppressed by the FBI.
