To say that things got heated on set of Roland Martin‘s News One Now is a complete understatement. By no surprise, Birth Of A Nation has rattled many black women, some using feminism as the reason why they wouldn’t support the film. The Nat Turner story opened to a disappointing $7M, and many people celebrated the low turnout to the teathers.
Insert actress Aunjanue Ellis (she plays Nat Turner’s mother). A discussion between she and BLACK Co-Founder Amber Phillips turned ugly as both women tried to get their point across about why the film should or shouldn’t be supported.
You have got to see this!
Fair or foul?
