Synopsis
From "Superfly" to "Shaft", from "Foxy Brown" to "Cleopatra Jones", this book offers a vivid pictorial and oral history of the best and most intriguing movies to emerge from a singularly American genre: African-American cinema of the 1970s.
Beautiful Full color design features original theatrical posters and artwork.

Book Description
Finally, a fun and serious book about the 1970's genre commonly called blaxploitation. The book is strong on color and photos of film posters and it is a delight to see this material reproduced so well, but as great as the eye candy is, this is no "fluff" book. Interviews inlcude such greats as Pam "Coffy" Grier, Fred "The Hammer" Williamson, Melvin "Sweetback" Van Peebles, William "Blacula" Marshall and more! A great treat for fans of this genre.
