More than Foxy Brown: Queens of Blaxploitation Films

- By

Vonetta McGee

Vonetta played love interest to Richard Roundtree aka Shaft aka the most acclaimed blaxploitation movie ever or at least its sequel, Shaft in Africa. She hit it big in the cult classics, Blacula and Hammer, going on to star in many other films including opposite Clint Eastwood. She had all the makings of an onscreen diva and the brains of a righteous thinking woman, saying “That label [blaxploitation] was used like racism, so you don’t have to think of the individual elements, just the whole.”
