We have learned of the passing of the 1 and only Max Julien. Well known for his portrayal of Goldie, in the film “The Mack”, Maxwell Banks was Giant of the Culture. He was an actor, writer, producer, sculptor and clothing designer. While many were turned on to Max Julien via the 1973 Cult Classic about the Pimp game, he was much more dynamic. An author, sculptor, clothing deisgner, producer, actor and writer, who wrote “Thomasine and Bushrod” & “Cleopatra Jones”, and contributed to the story of “The Mack.” Filmed in Oakland, Max talked and worked out deals with the Ward Brothers and Huey Newton. Originally written by Robert J. Poole, who had spent time in San Quentin prison in Northern California, Max was a contributing writer, who incorporated Huey as the role of Olinga (Roger E. Mosley) to show the challenge of fighting for the people vs street life in the film, “The Mack”, portions of proceeds went to the BPP breakfast program. He has been idolized in Hip Hop music and in films, such as “How to Be a Player”. A Giant of the Culture, we salute Max Julien. 🙏🏾 He will be included in #WestSideRidahReport this week, stay in Tune.
