Bumpy Johnson

Forest Whitaker


Forest Whitaker stars in GODFATHER OF HARLEM as “Bumpy Johnson,” the infamous crime boss who in the early 1960s returned from ten years in prison to find the neighborhood he used to rule in shambles and his power gone. With the streets controlled by the Italian mob, Bumpy has to take on the Five Families to regain control. In order to do so, he enlists the help of radical preacher Malcolm X — catching Malcom’s political rise in the crosshairs of social, political and criminal upheaval.
