OF NIGGER CHARLIE was the first major movie for former Oakland Raiders/Kansas
City Chiefs football star Fred Williamson. This film would establish Williamson
as one of the kingpins of the emerging blaxploitation genre. He plays
the title character of Nigger Charley, a slave who got beaten once-too-many-times
by his sadistic master and managed to escape the plantation. Charley takes
off for the Wild West where he becomes a feared gunslinger and violent
outlaw. Soon, he is challenged by every redneck in his path and becomes
the target of countless bounty hunters.
The popularity of the motion picture would spawn a sequel, SOUL OF NIGGER
CHARLIE. Fred Williamson's character is a near-mythical folk hero now,
a muscular black man who fights for what's right and has no qualms smashing
the faces of racist white guys. The story mostly deals with a battle between
Charlie and a Southern Colonel who oversees his own private slave trade,
exporting slaves to Mexico where they're beaten and forced to work for
a colony of Southern aristocrats.
