Nine middle-aged alumni of a black athletic-social club gather to honor their coach, and, in comparing their lives, tell a sensitive story of the black experience. Melvin Van Peebles, who wrote this adaptation of a John A. Williams novel, also turns in a strong performance as a fugitive pimp. The four-hour drama continues Wednesday and Thursday.
