Sam Greenlee at RDAC!
We were blessed to have brother Sam Greenlee at a screening of his classic 70s movie, The Spook Who Sat by the Door, at RDAC. Dozens of community folk came to see the film, some for the first time and some who are familiar with the classic, and just wanted to have a chance to speak with the legendary author and moviemaker. Among other comments regarding filmmaking and the role of Hip Hop in community empowerment, Brother Greenlee commented, "My movie effectively ended the Blaxploitation era in Hollywood..." Word.
