THE BIRTH OF A NATION
Set against the antebellum South, The Birth of a Nation follows a literate slave and preacher, Nat Turner, 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.
