Film & Discussion | Black Western Series: “Buck and the Preacher” (1971)
Sidney Poitier and Harry Belafonte star as a tough and taciturn wagon master and an unscrupulous, pistolpacking “preacher” who join forces to take on white bounty hunters threatening a westward-bound caravan of people recently emancipated from slavery. The second in our three-part series of films that challenge the myths of the Old West, telling stories of Black Americans on the frontier. Dr. Mia Mask joins us for a talk-back via Zoom. PG; 103 min.
