Black History Month Beauty: Pam Grier

Hi Cuties,

So we are continuing our Black History Beauty series.

I’m feeling the oldies but goodies these days, especially since the Passions is always crushing on the more younger, hipper, feminine beauties of today.  But to me, Black History encompasses a much larger aspect of our community – those feminine trail blazers that made it possible for those younger lovelies to do what they do so well.

So, another one of my bigger lady crushes growing up was Pam Grier.  Yes, PAM  GRIER.  Known as Queen of Blaxploitation cinema, she meant so much more to little girls growing up not really seeing anything vaguely resembling themselves on the big screen.  She was powerful, she was strong, she was kick-ass and she was magnificently beautiful – something all little girls need to feel in order to be empowered in a world that is often unkind to them.  So I was beyond happy to know that Miss Grier was cast as a major character in the Showtime series The L-word.  Although initially I felt the writing for her character was beyond sub-par – like seriously people, her storyline did improve somewhat over time.  At any rate, we would love to see more of Miss Grier on the silver screen or on the tube because she is a true Black History trailblazer.
