SUPPORT “The Birth of A Nation”, The Nat Turner Story (Watch Video and Sign Petition)

 

 

“The Birth of A Nation” was this year’s marquee project at the Sundance Festival 2016. Dr. R. Todd Morason videotaped the Q&A session that followed the film’s premiere. This discussion provides a number of interesting insights, including:

  1. Key Cincinnati, OH (home town) connections; Matthew Lindner and Carl Lindner, III were among the film’s investors.
  2. Nate Parker, turned to a college roommate, Jean McGianni Celestin, to assist in research and writing.
  3. Parker dedicated seven years of his life to the project, turning down acting opportunities until its completion.
  4. The film offers an unconventional look at slavery that better enables us to look at how ordinary people became involved with arguably the worst crime against humanity in the history of mankind.
  5. Parker, a man of Christian faith, presents the misuse of the Bible and poses a question, “What type of Christian are you?” The story also presents Christian context for the preacher Nat Turner, a fact that is often overlooked in the accounts of his life and one that dispels the myth that Christianity led slaves to be docile.
