Blaxsploitation movies - What was the first?
So the other day I was watching some documentary with Melvin Van Peebles. He claimed that his 1971 movie Sweet Sweetback's baadasssss song was the very first Blaxsploitation movie made. Now I don't know if that is really true or not. It did make me wonder though what else possibly came out before it? What do you think the first Blaxsploitation movie is then? What others are some of the first? The other thing this made me wonder is just like everything else there had to be some sort of precursor to Blaxsploitation, what movies out there paved the way for the first Blaxsploitation movies?
