    BLACK MOVIES
    By Andre Austin

    Shaft, Harlem Nights, Superfly
    Black movies move the world Baby Boy
    Cleopatra Jones & Cabin in the sky
    Richard Pryor cutting it up in Toys

    Black movies move the planet
    Runteldat it’s a fact so move back
    Zechariah 2:3 Poetic Justice for Janet
    Here comes the return of the Mack

    I got the hook up for Life fazes
    Can I get a Carwash and a song to sing
    Dropped out of School Daze
    And Love don’t cost a thing

    We got the Juice’s reaction
    And the Brown Sugar too
    Getting A piece of the action
    Carmen, I’m in love with you

    How to be a Player gets you Fame
    The Best man, and He got Game
    Two can play that game
    And it’s a Low down dirty shame

    Black movies move the world
    I love black movies
    I’m Black movies
    And Black movies love you

    RIGHT ON, BABY! RIGHT ON!


    *Where is a black power fist when you need one?!*

    WONDERFUL ODE TO BLACK CINEMA! :toast:


    From the first Black film ever written, directed, cast, produced, through the Blaxploitation Era and to present-day, Black movies have always shown a "slice of life" from OUR lives, through the good, the bad, and the ugly; but they still showed and told about US.

    Yes, the White power structure/film industry exploited us; but, for the times, we still got to see Black faces on the Big Screen and through the years, we've evolved so much in front of the camera and behind it.
