Pam Grier aka Foxy Brown Pens Her First Memoir-Book Tour Dates

The black-exploitation film era was one that some want to forget, and others who won’t forget. It was a time where black people came in droves to see people who look like them on the big screen. Didn’t matter if the film was excellent, good, or okay, people of color was just happy to see their own on the big screen in starring roles.

Of course, one of the biggest actors/actress’ that ever hit the big screen in that era was Ms. Pam Grier aka “Foxy Brown”, a nickname that is still associated with Ms. Grier to this day. Her nickname came after the blockbuster hit, Foxy Brown, which made Ms. Grier a star and a household name during that era.

Well Ms. Grier has penned her first memoir, Foxy: My Life in Three Acts, and she’ll be talking about it this Sunday at 2 p.m. at the L.A. Times Festival of Books.
