What's she says we have President Nixon to thank for the change. era of black exploitation films is she says. President Nixon has had a lot to do with that He's brought everybody together He's ripping everybody no matter what race So the blacks don't feel they have to get Whitey any more he's already been gotten and so has Greeny and Purpley and everybody Political considerations should put some new zing in Diahann's career There has been talk of turning it into a TV but she says she doubts she'll do it is too time The picture is another bit of happiness for who is suddenly a happy person. a lovely she says. a long I was a success in my professional life and I was a success in raising my daughter but my personal life was pretty much ups and downs.
