The TropeMaker[=/=]UrExample of this genre is ''Film/SweetSweetbacksBaadasssssSong''. Note that unless indicated, if a movie is mentioned below, it's referring to the original 1970s/1980s version, and not to any subsequent remake under the same name. The Blaxploitation genre hasn't been as common since the 1980s, mainly due to [[UnfortunateImplications concerns from African American civil rights groups]], pushing it toward DeaderThanDisco status.
