Storyline

A black Korean War veteran and his family try to realize their dream of economic independence and to be a "boss" in the early era of civil rights in San Francisco. "Charlie Walker", a fighter, refused to take "No" for an answer. Until "Black Gold" opens a door that had never been opened to a black man. This is a story about what happened when he steps through that door, a door that the establishment tries to slam shut on him with all their might. "Charlie" with cunning, an old beat up truck, sexy women and humor kicks the door wide open and laughs all the way to the bank! Written by anonymous
