Black History Caught on Film: Pam Grier – Truly One of the Baddest to the Bone

written by Ahmaine Canada and Betti Halsell

Pam Grier

She’s beautiful, foxy, dazzling, and a proactive queen—we’re talking about none other than Pam Grier. The multi-talented actress portrayed an iconic stand-firm woman that knew exactly what she wanted.


Grier was the image of sex appeal, jaw-dropping in everything she did. Her persona and roles were phenomenal; Grier’s archetype in the film consisted in being a powerful femme fatale star; she’s most recognizable in Blaxploitation definitely–a Foxy Bad Mamajamma.

Coffy, 1973


Grier is one of four children, born May 26, 1949, in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. As an actress and singer, Grier is considered one of the first African American women to headline an action film. She is described as cinema’s first female action star.


Grier was believed to have been discovered by the director Jack Hill, who eventually cast Grier in his 1971 film, “The Big Doll House.” Her breakout and the most memorable role was in the box office hit films, “Coffy,” (1973) and “Foxy Brown” (1974). Her stunning actress skills resulted in receiving The 20/20 Awards, Csapnivalo Awards, and SDFCS Award.


Grier had a long run as an actress, performing in at least 45 roles. Although her name was in the lights, Grier lives quite the life, her sister died from cancer in 1990, and her nephew committed suicide because of his mother’s illness.

Foxy Brown, 1974


Unfortunately, to add to this struggle, Grier was diagnosed with cancer in 1988 and was given eighteen months to live, which had an effect on how she lived. Grier has no known children or marital relationships; she was romantically tied to Richard Pryor and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.


Grier is forever a talented and memorable icon. Grier is beautiful, inspiring, and powerful. She has over five decades of cinematic credits, which include working alongside filmmakers such as Roger Corman, John Carpenter, and Quentin Tarantino.

Grier is definitely a major highlight for Black history month, with her most famous quotes, “Me, sexy ? I’m just plain ol’ beans and rice.” and an all-time favorite quote of Grier’s, “It’s always fun to put on bell bottoms and have your butt hanging out and hip huggers.”
