Pamela Suzette Grier is an American actress. She achieved fame for her starring roles in women in prison and blaxploitation films for American International Pictures and New World Pictures, most notably Coffy and Foxy Brown.
The complexity of world events can’t be modelled by a flow chart or even the most sophisticated algorithms. Instead, military officers, diplomats, and policy analysts sometimes turn to an old but sophisticated set of tools: war games. Simon Parkin observed officials playing one in order to predict and contain a potential geopolitical conflict. And Michael Schulman speaks with Pam Grier, the pioneering star of blaxploitation films like “Coffy” and “Foxy Brown,” about her singular career in Hollywood.
