Abstract:The direction of this dissertation is to focus on the relationship between Hollywood and African-Americans at the point where a fiscal crisis and social-political climate came together to produce blaxploitation. In three critical narratives it will focus on the production of Shaft, the success of American International Pictures, and patterns of exhibition and distribution of blaxploitation films across the country. Driven by economic need, yet explicitly tied to a political climate of black nationalism and a social structure which created large pockets of black film goers, blaxploitation is not only a creation of the historical moment, it is very much reflective of it.
