Five on the Black Hand Side (1973)
In contrast to most of the violence-laden “blaxploitation” films of the period, this low-budget effort eschews exploitation for humanity and domestic drama. Leonard Jackson plays a barber who is also the domineering head of a middle-class African American family. Jackson is forced to rethink his values when his previously docile wife joins their three children in rebelling against her husband’s retrogressive behavior.
