It’s October, y’all! We’re celebrating what we call Black Cinema Month at Soul Music Society! That means we are highlighting some of the most legendary films from the 70s including their stars and their music.

Let’s Do It Again fits nicely into this rundown of iconic Black cinema of the 70s. In this scene, (Biggie Smalls) Calvin Lockhart and John Amos (Kansas City Mac) have it out Old School 70s style!⁠

All I know is that John Amos is one of the most underrated actors in the history of film and theatre. 100% raw talent. Do y’all agree?  So here’s more about this film…⁠

The film, directed by legendary icon Sidney Poitier, is about blue-collar workers who decide to rig a boxing match to raise money for their fraternal lodge. The song “Let’s Do It Again” by The Staple Singers was featured as the opening and ending theme of the film, and as a result, the two have become commonly associated with each other. ⁠

Watch this clip of John Amos. He’s clearly a boss! You’ll see what I mean when you watch it.

AND Y’ALL please remember that when somebody tests y’all in the future…”You got to bring ass to get ass!” This cracks me up so much! ⁠
