Description by OLDIES.com:

Wilkes is "Cornbread," a promising highschool basketballer who has what it takes to shoot himself right out of the ghetto -- until two cops mistake him for a rapist and gun him down in cold blood. But when the police attempt to cover up their mistake, strong-arming the community into silence with threats of jail time and violence, it's up to Cornbread's 11-year-old brother Wilford (Laurence Fishburne) and his pal Earl (Tierre Turner) to find the courage to speak the truth and clear Cornbread's name.

Product Description:

This early commentary on the practice of racial profiling features one of the earliest performances by the young Laurence Fishburne, in a heartrending story of a talented young black athlete who is gunned down by police after being mistaken for a violent crook. After his murder, his parents struggle to clear their son's name in the face of a police cover-up.
