last week i ran into melvin van peebles. if you don’t know about him you should do the research. he’s a considered the father of blaxplotation. his 3rd film, “sweetback’s baadasss song” set things of in 1971 because if pulled $4 million despite the fact that it we so controversial due to its racially and socially charged matter that no one really knew what to do with it!
