-----
In this episode, Miriam introduces the life and career of music icon Taylor Swift (American, born 1989). The hosts revisit her early musical beginnings, and how her ambition and talent propelled her to success at a young age. They discuss her controversies, including the interrupted VMA speech and her legal battles, and how through it all, Swift kept her family close, and showed resilience and determination, becoming a powerhouse in the music industry with millions of fans worldwide. They survey Swift's control over her music, her activism and advocacy, her political engagement, and her recognition as TIME Person of the Year. Next, Lavetta introduces black action icon Pam Grier (American, born 1949), beginning with her childhood and family, a traumatic experience, her move to Los Angeles, and her entry into acting. Grier rose to stardom in the 1970s, with breakthrough roles in the low-budget films Coffy and Foxy Brown. She became known for her strong and sexy on-screen presence and for her impact on black exploitation films. Her portrayal of powerful black women resonated with audiences. Grier's career was reinvigorated in 1996 with Quentin Tarantino's film Jackie Brown. She had relationships with Freddie Prinze and Richard Pryor, but she chose to prioritize herself and her career, and continues to be a respected and influential figure in the entertainment industry and her philanthropic work.
