Episode 166: Boss Nigger

Special Guest: Fred "The Hammer" Williamson

Boss Nigger is one of the American Westerns that used the feel of the Euro-westerns that came to the fore in the mid-1960s, but with an African-American twist. The film stars Fred "The Hammer" Williamson as "Boss" and D'Urville Martin as "Amos" – two bounty hunters who become sheriff and deputy of a small western town. The twosome battles bad guys, civic corruption and racism with words and guns.

Our special guest co-host this week is David Walker of Badazz Mofo.
