Watermelon Man

The very curious dilemma of a man who wakes up in the middle of the night and finds he’s black.

The tour de force of a great actor and actress, Godfrey Cambridge and Estelle Parsons, bolstered by Mantan Moreland and Emil Sitka, Howard Caine and so on, all excellently directed by Van Peebles.

The author is Herman Raucher, who among other things wrote Sweet November and Summer of ’42.
