Godfather of Harlem recounts the true story of infamous crime boss Bumpy Johnson, who in the early 1960s returned from a decade in prison to find the neighborhood he once ruled in shambles. With the streets controlled by the Italian mob, Bumpy must form an alliance with radical preacher Malcolm X to take on the Genovese crime family to regain control. Amid the social upheaval of a mob war, Godfather of Harlem explores the collision of the criminal underworld and the civil rights movement during one of the most tumultuous times in American history.
