Riverbend (1989)


In a small Georgia town, white supremacy and black power come face to face. Major Quinton (Steve James) and his men are on the lam, running from a rigged court martial. They seek refuge in the small Georgia town of Riverbend where a cruel white sheriff (Tony Frank) is terrorizing the Black population. Bell (Margert Avery) becomes their only ally in a town on the verge of exploding. Quinton is enraged by the injustice that he sees. He mobilizes a secret army and formulates a brilliant plan. In one bold stroke, on one fateful night, the fight for freedom and human rights will be decided.
