Movie Summary


Lola Falana, Roscoe Lee Browne and Yaphet Kotto star in "The Liberation of L.B. Jones" -
a powerful drama about infidelity, racism and murder.

Lord Byron Jones (Roscoe Lee Browne) is a well-to-do Black funeral director in a small town in Tennessee.
Jones wants to get a divorce from his wife, Emma Jones (Lola Falana), because he knows that she has
been having an affair with a White police officer named Willie Joe Worth (Anthony Zerbe). Now that Emma
is pregnant, Jones believes that the baby was fathered by the White policeman. Thus, he wants
a quiet divorce from his wife.

Emma, however, wants as much alimony as she can get, so she refuses to give L.B. Jones a divorce without a
fight . If the matter goes to trial, though, the inter-racial affair will become public, expose everyone and
possibly ignite racial tensions in the community.

Officer Worth and his partner Stanley Bumpas (Arch Johnson) decide to take matters into their own hands,
making the situation worse for everyone, especially L.B. Jones.
