Last week, Vonetta McGee, renowned Black actress
of the 1970's passed away at 65. She was an exceptional
beauty who exuded charm and quiet strenght in her
roles. Originally, her career began in Italian film, and
she got her start in Hollywood thanks to Sidney Poitier
casting her in 'The Lost Man'. Best known for her roles
in 'Blacula', 'Shaft in Africa', and 'The Eiger Sanction'
among others, Ms.McGee was a graceful talent that will
be sorely missed. Rest in power.
