In the pre-Civil War South, a sadistic plantation-owner brutalizes his slaves to the point of them heaving no other choice but to rebel. Always obedient, peaceful and honest old slave Tom plays a central role in this tragedy.

"The Trial of the Moke" is about the first black man to graduates from West Point. Flipper is framed for embezzlement by his fellow cadets to drive him away. But Flipper wasn't going anywhere until he cleared his name.
Samuel L. Jackson,
Uncle Tom's Cabin has a good story, it has a message that still resonates, and it has good actors.
In truth the story has been chopped up and glued back together. I'm sure that there are better version out there, but for a TV movie this is one worth seeing.
Basically, this is one of those 1980's TV movies that for the most part has been forgotten (along with a majority of the decade's movies). If you can find a copy for cheap I'd recommend adding it to your collection.
