The Final Comedown (1972)

  • Billy Dee Williams
  • D'urville MArtin
  • Celia Kaye
  • Raymond St. Jacques

Blaxploitation pride's 300th post features Billy Dee Williams who stars as Johnny Johnson, a young black man with a promising future and an impatience for racism. This gets out of control when the job he applies for is given to a less qualified white man. As a result, he joins a radical civil rights group, and takes matters into his own hands through a violent revolution and ultimate confrontation with police.
