Overview

This sequel to Cotton Comes to Harlem 1970 brings back Coffin Ed Johnson Raymond St. Jacques and Gravedigger Jones Godfrey Cambridge, two freewheeling African-American police detectives working the beat in Harlem. Joe Peter DeAnda is a famous photographer who has mounted a crusade to drive drug dealers out of Harlem, but his intentions are hardly civic-minded; he hopes that by cutting out as much competition as possible, he can take over the business and corner the neighborhood's dope market. Caspar Maxwell Glanville, one of Harlem's biggest dealers, is the only one who has figured out Joe's angle, and he carefully guards his territory. When a few local dealers begin turning up dead, Joe announces that the ghost of a powerful Harlem gangster, Charleston Blue, has returned to clean up the neighborhood; the small-time dope men are a suspicious lot, and many of them flee the city. But Coffin Ed and Gravedigger know that something fishy is going on, and they struggle to get the goods on Joe and Caspar, as well as solving the mystery of Charleston Blue. Like its predecessor, Come Back Charleston Blue was based on a novel by crime writer Chester Himes.

    Charleston was long overdue to come back

    This movie was very good and exciting. It told a lot about what used to go on in harlem unbeknownest to many. The two officers were as wise as the happenings in the streets, because they too were from the streets. But because they pulled out of the streets were a step ahead of those growing up in the community behind them. This movie is a must see. Your library is missing a lot if you don't have this african american peice of art.
