Episode 125: Blaxploitation
On this episode of The Bonus Material Podcast, Thom Carnell, BLEEDINGHAM's Gary Washington, poet Robert Lashley, and Langley J West chat about the Blaxploitation Film phenomenon of the 1970s. From COTTON COMES TO HARLEM, COFFY, SHAFT, and THE MACK to BLACK DYNAMITE and POOTIE TANG, we'll try and cover them all. We'll also talk about the impact these films had on society and the impact they had on black culture. Then, Langley and Thom go over some news, review some trailers, and make a few recommendations.
