Today's episode of the Freedom Train Podcast Series we discussed the release of The Birth of a Nation, and the documentary 13th. What factors led to The Birth of a Nation not living up to expectations at the box office this past weekend? Is the story of Nat Turner overshadowed by the controversy surrounding Nate Parker's past? We also discussed the new documentary 13th, a documentary that covers the how slavery was transformed into its modern form, and how mass incarceration helped to destabilize Black American families. What impact will both films have on the black community? How can we create or use our own black movie production companies to tell our own stories? Tune in to hear what we had to say.
