“There is a brief moment in the pivotal scene where Tommy makes his power play to take over Harlem. As he stealthily approaches the room where the bosses are meeting, he pauses ever-so briefly in front of the Cardoza family’s coat-of-arms, with it’s crossed swords framing his body.
I love the symbolism here… Tommy is essentially replacing the coat-of-armswith his own personal symbol – his weapon of choice, clenched in his hand. Not something so archaic as a sword, as was representative of the previous dynasty, but a weapon more indicative of the new boss in town: Tommy Gibbs. Black Caesar.” – Billy Perkins
