Aaron Loves Angela (1975)

Aaron (Kevin Hooks, Sounder, A Hero Ain't Nothin But A Sandwich) is a gifted black ball-player in Harlem, N.Y., whose father (Moses Gunn, Shaft, Amazing Grace) expects Aaron to have the basketball career he never had. Angela (Irene Cara, Sparkle, Sister, Sister) is a Puerto Rican girl from Spanish Harlem who lives alone with her mother. When Aaron and Angela fall in love, they worry that their racial difference will cause friction between their family and friends, and decide to meet in secret. The plan works until they discover their love nest is also host to some major drug deals.
