This 1975 ComingOfAge film has been described as "The Black ''AmericanGraffiti''." As TheOtherWiki puts it, the story explores the adventures and relationships of Leroy "Preach" Jackson (Glynn Turman) and Richard "Cochise" Morris (Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs), two black high school students at Edwin J. Cooley High School whose carefree lives take a turn for the worse through several twists of fate.
