Melvin Van Peebles’ SWEET SWEETBACK’S BAADASSSSS SONG was a monumental moment for Black cinema and a gamechanger for cinema as a whole. Not only are we joined by the great Michael Jai White, whose BLACK DYNAMITE was a direct descendant of SWEETBACK, but his friend Mario Van Peebles (son of Melvin, and star of BAADASSSSS!, which tells the story of the making of today’s film) pops in to drop some wisdom on us!
Then, we play a quiz about the celebrity children of celebrity parents.
