Ep 31 - Uptight (1968) / by Len Webb

The streets of Cleveland in the wake of Martin Luther King's death are teeming with threats of militant violence and one man's disillusionment and paranoia uncorks the tension in harsh tones. An unforgiving naked look at a urgent time in history through the story of a black man losing his soul, starring Julian Mayfield, Ruby Dee, Max Julien, Raymond St. Jacque and directed by Jules Dissian. An criminally unrecognized crime classic.
