At 81, Melvin Van Peebles Is Still A Baadasssss
"Mr. Van Peebles, best known for his pioneering 1971 independent film, Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song, ... is making his public debut as a visual artist. That adds to a résumé that includes filmmaker, composer, actor, novelist, Wall Street trader, San Francisco cable car driver, playwright, bandleader, vocalist and, by his own account, bon vivant."
