Call her Jackie Brown, call her Coffy, just don't call her late for dinner, because blaxploitation icon Pam Grier appears in person at the Egyptian Theater to sign copies of her tell-all memoir, Foxy: My Life in Three Acts, followed by screenings of Foxy Brown and Jackie Brown, Grier's samely named but decades-apart badass classics. While Quentin Tarantino's 1997 Jackie enshrined Grier as the queen of female empowerment, it was 1974's Foxy that first crowned her. Just check the poster: "She's brown sugar and spice/but if you don't treat her nice/she'll put you on ice!"
