Movie Review: The Mack (1973)

Set up to take the fall during a shoot out and physically abused by racist cops (Don Gordon and William C. Watson), Goldie (Max Julien) spends 5 years in prison. When he gets out he pledges to become king of his neighborhood, building himself up as a pimp so he can support his doting mother (Juanita Moore) and help out the local kids who don’t have any spending money. Those asshole cops are back on his tail, and he’ll need all the help he can get to take them down, including his activist brother (Roger E. Mosley) and his buddy Slim (Richard Pryor).
