Black Urban Media in its duration has been known to introduce our readers and subscribers to films and books that we feel is imperative for you and your household. By now everyone should be up on some of the top black independent films such as Wilmington on Fire, Hidden Colors: The Untold History Of People Of Aboriginal,Moor,and African Descent, Hidden Colors 2: The Triumph Of Melanin. However, there was a black film that rubbed the government the wrong way called, The Spook Who Sat By The Door, by Sam Greenlee.
This movie made the US government’s skin crawl because it was based on a black man who was trained by CIA and he ended using his skills he acquired to start a black revolution that took over the country. Now all of my black conscious readers aren’t surprised that this would ruffle some feathers. Unfortunately, the film was banned from the movie theatres and the actors and actresses on the film were practically blacklisted from any other acting opportunities. Check out the interview with the producer below.
The good news is that you can purchase the DVD and book below via Amazon. Find out for yourself what the madness was about back then.
