Mural of Shaft,  Tib Street substation,  Manchester,  January 2017

In late 2016, BFI explored the history and celebrated the talents of black stars in tv and film.

The Sheffield born and bred street artist, Pawski, has highlighted the American actor Richard Roundtree.  This black star first achieved fame for his portrayal of the private detective John Shaft in the 1971 film Shaft.

  1. Who’s the cat that won’t cop out
    When there’s danger all about
    Right on
    You see this cat Shaft is a bad mother
    (Shut your mouth)
    But I’m talkin’ about Shaft
    (Then we can dig it)

    Cool find for a cool cat. Thanks for contributing to this week’s Monday Mural.
