This series is absolutely amazing. It is so believable and seems authentic. It also features some of our favorite heroes from the Black community. The casting is superb. The actors look like the characters. Malcolm looks like Malcolm. Adam Clayton Powell and Muhummad Ali all resemble the real people so much that it is easy to believe that we have stepped back in time. Each episode is fresh with twist, turns and jaw dropping story lines. What comes across in each rendition of someone playing Bumpy Johnson is that although he was a thug, it seems like he had a lot off love for Harlem. Bumpy Johnson's character appears in Shaft, Hoodlum, American Gangster and now this production.
