I fell in love with Pam the moment I saw her and have followed her career for a while now. A trend setting, powerful and versatile renaissance woman. Thank you for this series.
OG Foxy Pam Grier is EVERYTHING!!
She was a role model back in the day. We , as children loved all of Pam's movies.
You had said her dad never saw her after he left, now say leaving without her mother or daddy Ray?
I really admire Ms. Grier for talking about discrimination in Denver clothing stores. I got a very tiny taste of that in college. My skin is VERY white, I'm from Northern Virginia and went to college in Harrisonburg, VA in the early 70's. As students, we were not allowed to try on clothes in the clothing stores because staff was afraid we'd shoplift items. It was amazing to me how much difference 160 miles could make.
