Afro-Style was created in 2001 in order to promote African-American cinema, which had been somewhat shelved since Black Exploitation. The Black cinema did not stop, it continued its way despite the abandonment of Hollywood.

At the end of the 70’s, Black Exploitation was no longer in fashion and Afro cinema turned to a musical culture that was “not very promising” according to the specialists: “Hip Hop”. At the beginning of the 80’s, films like Style Wars, Wild Style took black cinema in a new direction with the arrival of young talents such as Rae Dawn Chong in Beat Street or Blair Underwood in Crush Groove.



While Spike Lee made his debut in 1987 with Nola Darling, another actor-director, Robert Townsend, made his way with a controversial film: Hollywood Shuffle. But in 1988, a film will be talked about because of its distribution and its soundtrack signed Ice T, this film is Colors, it tells the life of cops in the Chicano neighborhoods. One of the first films about the malaise of the neighborhoods before the arrival of Do the right thing in 1989 and Juice the same year.

These three masterpieces will revive the Afro-American cinema with a dominant less cultural but more focused on social problems, so films like New Jack City, Boyz N the Hood and Menace II Society will strengthen the position of black cinema in the United States.

The goal of Afro-Style is to allow you, the Internet users, to consult the history of the Black American cinema at all times as well as information on all the artists, directors, films of yesterday and today, the box-office of the Afro-style team and our articles on all the events of the Afro culture…

The Afro-Style team thanks you for your loyalty.
