Slave owner Warren Maxwell insists that his son, Hammond, who is busy bedding the slaves he buys, marry a white woman and father him a son. While in New Orleans, he picks up a wife, Blanche, a "bed wench," Ellen, and a Mandingo slave, Mede, whom he trains to be a bare-knuckle
fighting champion. Angered that Hammond is spending too much time with his slaves, Blanche beds down Mede.

A massively underrated film. One of the best of the '70s. (Yes, I'm serious.)

Visit the Museum of Black Cult Cinema for additional information and digital media.
