Harlem Resident Brittany Jones Cooper And Forest Whitaker Talk “Godfather Of Harlem”

On Thurday, September 19th, 2019, Harlem resident and BUILD hostess Brittany Jones-Cooper talked to Forest Whitaker who plays Harlem Bumpy Johnson about the new EPIX film “Godfather Of Harlem.”

Godfather of Harlem” tells the true story of infamous crime boss Bumpy Johnson (Forest Whitaker), who in the early 1960s returned from ten years in prison to find the neighborhood he once ruled in shambles.

With the streets controlled by the Italian mob, Bumpy must take on the Genovese crime family to regain control. During the brutal battle, he forms an alliance with radical preacher Malcolm X – catching Malcolm’s political rise in the crosshairs of social upheaval and a mob war that threatens to tear the city apart. “Godfather of Harlem” is a collision of the criminal underworld and the civil rights movement during one of the most tumultuous times in American history.
