The Best Black Movies Of The 80s, Part I

Eddie Murphy Beverly Hills Cop

Comedians (read Eddie Murphy) and that new thing called Hip-Hop dominated Black movies in the early 80s, but somehow, unlike today, there was nothing Minstrel show-ish about it.

Take a look back at a time when African-American actors could lead a multi-cultural cast to one of the highest grossing movies of the decade… And when White directors could interpret Alice Walker without loosing one ounce of soul.

And before you yell at us about what we forgot, remember this is just part 1.
