Man & Boy (1971)


  • Bill Cosby
  • Gloria Foster
  • Leif Erickson
  • George Spell
  • Yaphet Kotto
I find that it is very important that the American Society will continue to show these types of films where Black men are the leading voice and to show that Blacks did want to be employed even during Westward Expansion time when governments chose not to employ Black men. To show that once a Black man was willing to stand behind his child and show the child what's right from wrong and to stick up for his belongings that will be taken from them even after they have fought long and hard in the Civil War (just to be called a "Nigger Blue-Belly" and denied homestead) is long overdue. If you steal my horse, shouldn't I get it back! If you look at most films that expose the truth of Westward Expansion you will learn that the Native American men and the African American men were not allowed to ride up on horses into town and talk to any women because they were looked upon as savages to White men with homesteads. Plain and simple the women were for White men only. But, this film shows the opposite and it is by no means a tool to pull any race card. Long live Bill Cosby!!!!!!
