Fetch Clay, Make Man explores how each handled a life in
the public eye as black men in their respective eras Hollywood in the
20s, where a black actor s career depended on playing caricatures, and
the mid-60s, after the assassination of Malcolm X. With incisive
characterizations, crackling dialogue and generous doses of dark humor
(Hollywood Reporter), Fetch Clay, Make Man audaciously recreates this
improbably friendship and, through the relationship, digs to the heart
of race relations during the highly charged days of 1960s America."
