11 Jan 7:07am The return of blaxploitation: why the time is right to bring back Shaft and Foxy Brown

Everything old is new again in this world of popular culture and social media, where the lines between past and present are constantly blurred if not completely invisible. On Instagram, we celebrate Throwback Thursdays while the daily drama that comes out of the White House often makes it feel as though we are literally being thrown backwards into a past that many naively thought was long gone or perhaps never existed.
