I remember the movie Shaft! I was around 12 when it came out. Richard Roundtree was I believe a model before he became famous portraying John Shaft.

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.
