blaxploitation is the morphing of the words “black” and “exploitation”. It is a film genre from the 1970s that targeted the urban african-american audience. The actors used were mainly black and was the first style to use funk and soul music. Although initially popular it quickly disingrated as a film genre critizised for the use of stereotypes.
The films 'Do the Right Thing', 'Shaft' and 'Jackie Brown' are all examples of blaxploitation.
