    Blaxploitation

    Tuesday May 21
    05:00 - 07:00 GMT

    blaxployposter.jpgWe can't profess to being a funk and soul radio station without paying homage to the era of blaxploitation, the cult film genre that swept into Black American communities beginning in the early 70s, in the wake of Melvin Van Peebles' groundbreaking independent film Sweetback's Baadasssss Song. Sweetback ushered in an era of film making that wasn't nearly as serious as Van Peebles' movie. Quite quickly, his innovations were diluted and channeled into a genre called blaxploitation. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) head and ex-film publicist Junius Griffin coined the term from the words 'black' and 'exploitation. However, the soundtrack for these films sometimes surpassed the popularity of the films themselves, and are still revered today as the ultimate music to define a very unique period of funk and soul where cinematic orchestration, a plethora of wah-wahs, deep resonating bass, and funky beats were most prevalent.
