The lovely and talented Vonetta McGee passed away on July 10th at the age of 65. Vonetta is remembered by many genre fans from films like Blacula, Norliss Tapes, Shaft In Africa and other great roles in films like Melinda, Hammer, Detroit 9000, and many more.
She was diagnosed with lymphoma in her teen years and lived a long life despite what doctors told her.
Her career was influential to many of us who were first introduced to her by her roles in Blacula and Norliss Tapes. In many of the obits that have been written, they people call her an exploitation actress, but she was far more than that.
