The first time I saw Nate Parker, I knew that he would be another great and admired actor in more films. Nate Parker is to star in and direct a film titled, The Birth of a Nation. It is a Nat Turner film.
Nat Turner is the African-American slave who led a slave rebellion of both free and enslaved blacks in Southampton County, Virginia on August 21, 1831 that resulted in 60 white and more black deaths.
Nate Parker picked an interesting character to portray. The story of Nat Turner sounds exciting in history, and makes you want to see it acted out on screen.
