Nate Parker’s film The Birth of a Nation, which tells a version of Nat Turner’s infamous 1831 slave revolt in Virginia, underperformance at the box office raising question of the profitability of telling Black history stories like Turner’s. Some of the film’s most ardent advocates have charged that its problems result from plots among black feminists to harpoon the work of a man, the film’s produce, acquitted of rape. Other reviewers and supporters have called the film necessary viewing in spite of its creator. Join in the discussion of the film, Nat Turner, Nate Parker and the movement to boycott and Blacklist a film.
