Wikipedia states this is "a rare honest Hollywood movie about blacks, making it virtually unique." Released in 1972, some expected its great success would result in more great black family films, yet even into the 21st century, Hollywood would fail to make a significant number of great black films. Cicely Tyson, Paul Winfield received actor nominations, the first Hollywood film to receive two noms for two black actors. Even the screenplay received an Academy nom, written by black actor, playwriter Lonnie Elder III. Even in 2021, most Americans do not realize that the 13th Amendment explicitly allowed slavery to continue, as long as it was made in the guise of incarceration.
