"Always bet on black!"
Today, we pay tribute to the often unsung black action hero and heroine.Those men and women who, for over four decades, have kicked, punched and exploded their way across the big screen.
We start off in the 1970s and bring the discussion all-the-way modern day with names like Pam Grier, Tamara Dobson, Robert Hooks, Jim Kelly, Richard Roundtree, Carl Weathers, Wesley Snipes, Keenan Ivory Wayans, Will Smith, Vivica Fox, Dwayne Johnson, Anthony Mackie, Rosario Dawson, Zoe Saldana, Denzel Washington and more.
*Music featured on the episode: The Shaft Theme, Axel F, Men in Black, and Still D-R-E.
