Back of the Theater Podcast

Professor and Filmmaker Dr. Bill Grant joins the show.  He talks about his film and teaching career.  We get into a debate about Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song.  This podcast covers a lot of ground: Spike Lee, Tyler Perry, Jimi Hendrix and the current state of film criticism.  Pick up his book Post-Soul Black Cinema: Discontinuities, Innovations and Breakpoints, 1970-1995.  A great read.
