Black Brigade, The (1970)

Black Brigade is also known as Carter’s Army, which aired on January 27, 1970. The movie is a war drama. It starred a host of prominent African-American film actors including Richard Pryor, Rosie Grier, Robert Hooks, Billy Dee Williams and Moses Gun.

A redneck officer (Stephen Boyd) is put in charge of a squad of all black troops charged with the mission of blowing up an important hydro dam in Nazi Germany. Their failure would delay the Allies advance into Germany, thus prolonging the war. These African-Americans are relegated to cleaning latrines and have little real military training, but Captain Beau Carter has no choice. He leads the rag tag unit to blow up the dam and they turn out to be heroic.
