40 Year Itch : They Called Him Boss Jack

Curtis Mayfield : Billy Jack

In this funky dispatch from the inner city, Curtis Mayfield tells us how he learned of the death of an old friend, "Boss" Jack. Shot from across the room and left to die on the floor as everyone else bolted out of the room. His friend's epitaph : 

Up in the city they called him Boss Jack
But down home he was a alley cat
Ah! Didn't care nothin' bout being Black
