NATE PARKER MAKES HISTORY AT SUNDANCE AS “BIRTH OF A NATION” EARNS LARGEST FESTIVAL DEAL EVER
Fox Searchlight is set to lock in a $17.5 million deal to purchase The Birth of a Nation, the epic drama about Nat Turner’s historic slave revolt as reported by Variety. The film starring Nate Parker as Turner, received a dynamic response following its premiere at Sundance Film Festival.
Parker also wrote and directed The Birth of a Nation, using his own money to finance the project. In what’s being called the “richest” deal in the film festival’s history, Fox Searchlight beat out The Weinstein Company, Sony, and Netflix in bidding.
A trailer has not been released. Gabrielle Union, Armie Hammer, Jackie Earle Haley, Aja Naomi King, and Mark Boone Jr. all star alongside Parker in the gripping real life story about the 1831 slave rebellion.

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.

Hello Moon Child, it's been a few years since we talked. Please let me know if you can do my chart for me, thank you. I'm in transition and really could help with some interpretations.
