Foxy by Pam Grier and Andrea Cagan

To say I was excited when I found out that Pam Grier was releasing a book
would be an understatement .  Excitement is just not strong or accurate  enough ,of a word to describe how I felt .  What African-American female did'nt want  to be Foxy Brown back in the day?  Who really wanted to grow up to be a maid .prostitute, or overbearing ,mother?  I was only a kid  when Pam Grier was at the height of her popularity.  So I can only remember that time from a 8 or 9 year old perspective.
I cant speak for all 9 year old African American girls , but this blogger that she
was bad(besides Cleopatra Jones and Wonder Woman).  Besides the obvious
things .like her relationship with Kareem-Abdul-Jabbar, Freddie Prinze,Sr and Richard Prior.  I found her life story intriguing for different reasons outside of her celebrity.  Did
you know that she spent some of her childhood in London?That her high school
choir (from Denver) were on their way to perform in L.A.  when they got caught in the
middle of the 1965 riots?  Or that she spent some time as a backup singer?   I dont
want to giveaway too much of the but  her life story is divided into three acts

                                 Act 1The Early Years 1949-1970

                                 Act Two Fro's and Freaks 1970-1989

                                 Act Three  Finding Balance 1990-the Present

As far as memoirs go I thought this was pretty good I gave it 4 out of 5 stars
