Actor Kyle Johnson From Movie "The Learning Tree" 50 Years Later

Although he isn’t as known as his iconic Mother (Nichelle Nichols of "Star Trek"), actor Kyle Johnson did have the lead role portraying an iconic figure of U.S. culture- Gordon Parks, in the autobiographical film, The Learning Tree.

As an African-American teen in small-town Kansas in the 1920s, Newt Winger (Kyle Johnson) largely shrugs off the racial prejudice of his time and place. His calm and self-controlled perspective is in direct opposition to that of his quick-tempered friend, Marcus Savage (Alex Clarke). But when Marcus' father, Booker (Richard Ward), murders a man -- and Newt witnesses the crime -- Newt realizes that going to the police could jeopardize both his friendship and his life.

It's an excellent film, especially for in that era. Kyle Johnson did the movie justice and a great actor. I had a serious crush on him as a pre-teen. He was my black James Dean. ...lol. If I find the full movie, I will post it on my channel for those who haven't seen it.

You're in luck. YT is starting to charge for a lot of black films, that were once free, but I was able to get around it. The copy is not of the greatest quality, but it doable. I posted it just minutes ago, so enjoy!
