Ninth Street (1999)The inhabitants of a deteriorating section of 1968 Junction City Kansas known as "Jump City" bemoan their existence and revel at the history of their neighborhood during its 1940's heydays when legendary jazz musicians regularly played its clubs. In 1968 the area has diminished to strip clubs and juke joints inhabited by Vietnam War draftees that pass through from nearby Fort Riley. Heads of the group include a wino (Don Washington) who lost a leg in WWII a taxi dispatcher (Isaac Hayes) a saloon owner (Queen Bey) and a crazed bag lady (Kaycee Moore). The younger generation is represented by a young prostitute (Nadine Griffith) who is trying to get off the streets but is forced to continue to work by a no-good boy friend (Byron Myrick) and the need to feed her baby. Martin Sheen also appears as a white minister who prefers the people in the area over his own congregation.
