Go See Birth of A Nation

I’m not an avid film watcher, but i must stress the importance of this movie to anyone of color. Don’t mean to segregate my audience, everyone is free to go see this.

I’m not an avid film watcher, but I must stress the importance of this movie to anyone of color. Don’t mean to segregate my audience, everyone is free to go see this.

Reasons to watch:

  1. African American History
    • I’ll be honest. I only hear about the “selected” African American heroes. The truth is that there were plenty of unsung heroes who were not deemed “fit” to be displayed to the public.
    • Another reminder of what our ancestors went through to pave the way for us. We have so many resources at our disposal. Birth of a Nation should spark a fire in you to go further than the limits placed on us. *Limits could be personally placed by ourselves.
    • Get a glimpse into the story of Nat Turner
  2. Nate Parker
    • He spent about 8 years making this movie….. Let that sink in…. He took 8 years of his life to deliver this. I don’t mind giving him a few bucks for his work.
    • Nate Parker’s past overshadowed this film. Why did a charge he was exonerated from matter when he was delivering a jewel to the people? There are many theories/ideas, but until America uses the same criticism on EVERYONE and not just black men in position to impact a mass audience…… kill the noise.

 

Go watch this! Buy the movie on DVD, Stream or catch it in a theater if still playing. It’s a really good movie!!
