Nate Parker attends ATL Screening of ‘Birth of a Nation’ & More [PHOTOS]

Written by | Ray Cornelius

“Birth of A Nation” writer, producer, director and star Nate Parker participated in a special Q&A session Wednesday evening following an advanced screening of his critically acclaimed film. The viewing took place at the Regal Atlantic Station and was attended by members of the Atlanta press as well students from the Atlanta University Center. It was moderated by Morehouse College’s Dr. Stephane Dunn, associate professor and Director of The Cinema, Television, & Emerging Media Studies program (CTEMS).

Set against the antebellum South, “Birth of a Nation” follows Nat Turner, a literate slave and preacher, whose financially strained owner, Samuel Turner, accepts an offer to use Nat’s preaching to subdue unruly slaves. As he witnesses countless atrocities – against himself and his fellow slaves – Nat orchestrates an uprising in the hopes of leading his people to freedom. The film also stars Gabrielle Union, Colman Domingo, Aunjanue Ellis, Aja Naomi King and Roger Guenveur Smith.

The brief discussion began with Parker talking candidly about his reasons for producing the film. He also opened up about a lot of the opposition he received from prominent Black and White filmmakers. In fact, he was warned not to do the film because he could experience potential backlash throughout Hollywood. But he claims that he remained steadfast in his convictions and did the movie anyway as an “artistic” offering to masses.

img_9991“So making this film became more of an offering as an artist and as person of faith to the art community and to the Black community and to America other than it was even a film or something I could do to further my career,” said Parker to the audience.

He also admitted that his personal walk of faith was tested while shooting the film so much so that he began questioning his own Christian beliefs. “We’re at a crossroads in many ways as a community!  I remember making this film I had to grapple with the idea of what it meant to be a Christian even. Am I a Nat Turner Christian or am I a Christian like those who hung him and beheaded him and skinned him and crushed his flesh to grease?”

“Birth of a Nation” opens in theaters on Friday, October 7.  Check out more images of Nate Parker below + photos from a recent screening that was hosted by David Banner:

The accuracy of any reserve estimate depends on the quality of available data, the interpretation of such data
and price and cost assumptions made by our reserve engineers.
In addition, the results of mining, testing and production activities may justify revision of estimates that were made previously.
If significant, such revisions would change the schedule of any further production and development of reserves.

I will not deny, however, that the modern left in Canada and abroad has, in their praiseworthy desire to condemn Israeli atrocities and domestic Islamophobia, at times stepped too far into the shadows of antisemitism. I wanted, for example, to believe that the allegations against Corbyn Labour party were overblown, but the evidence is pretty damning, and it really needs to be rooted out wherever it is.. one piece swimsuits

Adopting a policy similar to that of another agency does not easily resolve the CEO’s dilemma because a variety of philosophies exists among the pursuit policies of law enforcement agencies. Fed eral courts have reviewed numerous police pursuit cases using different standards of conduct and the courts routinely have reviewed the agency’s pursuit policy before rendering a decision. bikini swimsuit

hippy, tree hugging, love everyone, all natural, granola girl” long, LONG before it was popular. She gets away with no makeup with pure natural good looks and I will admit, her diet and work out, and sun avoidance, have given her the skin of an 19 year old, even though she has a good few decades on that age! The biggest part of her psychological make up, then and now, it seems, is a “no stress, no worries”, what shall be shall be, let look on the bright side of life, attitude, and it works for her, very well. I suspect that too was why she didn “worry”. cheap vibrators

fertility window. Contraception has been replaced by basal thermometers and
ovulation test kits. And a negative pregnancy test no longer leaves me heaving
