Curriculum & Screenings

The groundbreaking film The Birth of a Nation confronts American racism by exploring the life of Nat Turner and the horrific conditions that led him to revolt against the institution of slavery.  The film also depicts the retaliatory tactics that many White southerners employed against enslaved people in the aftermath of the revolt. As one of the most misunderstood men in American history, Nat Turner’s story provides the perfect crucible to investigate both historical and contemporary issues of race, power, memory and legacy.

The Nate Parker Foundation, in partnership with Point Made Films, is pleased to announce that beginning in January 2017, The Birth of a Nation will be available for private screenings and workshops for schools, universities, churches and community organizations. Our Teachers Guide as well as Pre and Post Screening workshops will use the film and Nat Turner’s story as the foundation to:

  • Build a deeper understanding of the most disturbing parts of our nation’s past
  •  Make connections between the unjust systems of the past and the continuation of racial  injustice today
  • Help participants begin a conversation about how to confront our history so we can do better – now, and in the future
  • Empower parents and educators to use the film and materials to educate students about resistance and the legacy of racism in America
