About this title

Synopsis:

One of today's most controversial African-American authors presents his hilariously acidic interpretations of 1970's black films like Shaft and Superfly and the hip-hop culture, fashion, and music they inspired. Includes interviews with luminaries such as Melvin Van Peebles and Pam Grier, movie stills and a few filthy comics.

Review:

"Hosanna! Darius James has done it again. As if his fabulous Negrophobia has not already set everyone hopping and agog, James has now given us the extraordinary, unique, provocative, and hilarious That's Blaxploitation! A must-read for every decent person in this great land, this U.S. of A." --Terry Southern

"This is no typical genre study. This is Darius James (a.k.a. Dr. Snakeskin) at his acerbic, opinionated, voodoo best. While That's Blaxploitation! includes tons of fascinating information on the movies of this 'genre' (often as marginalia), the heart of this book is in the very particular insights and attitude of its author. Whether expressing his annoyance with Shaft, his admiration for Sweetback, or revealing his mythic origins as 'The Wolfman of Winchester Avenue', Darius James has written a book that in itself defies categorizations, while drawing a sniperlike bead on a truly wild-ass phase of American culture." --Jim Jarmusch

"This funky, funny, fact-filled tome is a delight for both serious and casual fan of blaxploitation. Darius James's fevered mind delivers a steady stream of highly opinionated yang. Sue to be the pride of your coffee table." --Reginald Hudlin, director of House Party, Boomerang, and The Great Whyte Hype, and co-executive producer of HBO's Cosmic Slop
