Black Power and Black Dynamite By Looking Back, Film Points Toward a Possible Future for Black Cinema by Preach Jacobs
I grew up being a huge fan of hip-hop music that was socially conscious and talked about black empowerment. At a young age, I preferred a Public Enemy record over M.C. Hammer and read more about Marcus Garvey than the Hardy Boys. So, when I kept hearing about movies like Shaft and Foxy Brown, I just knew that they would be the type of movies that would inspire me and make me feel like an honorary Black Panther.
