Black Film: The Spook Who Sat By The Door

The Spook Who Sat By The Door

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.

  1. I LOVE this Movie!!!!! It taught me a great deal about navigating the waters of Corporate life – eyes and ears open, mouth closed! Thanks for bringing it back!

  2. Hello Blackurbanmedia,
    Thanks you for your post, Hey everyone.

    I am trying to look for a film that I saw many years ago when I was a young child.

    All I can remember of it is that it was a Black & White Alien/UFO film. I remember a man who worked at Roswell or some other Air base that was similar to Roswell meeting a young woman in a busy Cafe to show her something important! He then takes a napkin or piece of paper and draws either a UFO or an the shape of an Aliens head. He then gets spooked and burns it in an ash tray.

    That is all I can remember of the film I’m afraid! I have searched many different B&W films on this subject but have failed to find it. Would be great if I could watch it again.

    If any of the above springs to mind please let me know 🙂

    Many thanks!

    Great Job!
