Celebrating the 40th anniversaries of Blaxploitation films and films that starred Black actors during the Blaxploitation film genre. These films were released from January 1 – December 31, 1972 during the “Greatest Decade Ever” in Black cinematic history. Most of these movie posters are in the collection of The Museum Of UnCut Funk, with the exception of A Place Called Today, Fritz The Cat, Is The Father Black Enough and The Limit.
Pressbooks were created to provide theater owners with the information and materials needed to promote a given film. Pressbooks contained information on the actors, illustrations of film posters, newspaper ad slicks, movie notes, tie-in ideas and other promotional materials including ready-made film reviews.
