Set just after the Civil War, BUCK AND THE PREACHER stars Sidney Poitier and Ruby Dee as a former soldier and his wife (Dee) who, along with a shady ‘preacher’ (Belafonte), do whatever it takes to protect wagon trains of former slaves as they make the exodus to the Kansas territories to begin a new life.
