This is the story of a black man who has been elected sheriff in a U.S. southern county, due to the vote of blacks. He receives a huge amount of hostility from the non-tolerant white establishment, making his job very hard. The white former sheriff has his own struggle, as he balances his devotion to the law with his family and community relations. Things come to a head when the black sheriff puts a white man, the son of a wealthy land-owner of a neighboring county, in jail, and his daddy comes after him. Everyone around has to decide where their values really lie. Written by

I disagree with an earlier post that criticized this film as not being very well made. Having grown up in the South, I felt that the film conveyed the ugliness of racism very well. I think that this was a very well made film. Jim Brown was excellent in the role of a newly elected black sheriff. This film showed a side to racism that most people outside of the South didn't see.
I will agree with the previous reviewer on one point, though. Racism is, and was, a very ugly aspect to life in the South at the time that this film was made. While society has made many advances in stamping out racism, there is still much to be done.
