SWEET SWEETBACK’S BAADASSSSS SONG

Part of Music City Mondays: Blaxploitation.

After saving a Black Panther from some racist cops, a male prostitute respected for his sexual prowess goes on the run from "the man" with the help of the black community and some disillusioned Hells Angels. Written, directed, produced, edited, scored and starring Melvin Van Peebles, this self-financed, low-budget exploitation film, which grossed over $4 million at the box office, proved to Hollywood that a film portraying black militancy could be highly profitable. Earth, Wind & Fire perform Van Peebles’s outstanding score.
