In this lecture, Professor Holloway canvasses some of the political turmoil of this era and the ways that it was reflected in popular culture. Yet the early 1970s was also a moment of black cultural celebration, and Professor Holloway explores the complicated messages about black sexuality in general, and black masculinity and the role of black women in specific, depicted in blaxploitation films like Shaft, Sweet Sweetback's Badasssss Song, Super Fly, and Foxy Brown.
