Black History Studies presents:

Nat Turner: A Troublesome Property


Nat Turner's slave rebellion is a watershed event in America's long and troubled history of slavery and racial conflict. Nat Turner: A Troublesome Property is about the multiple ways in which that moment has been remembered and interpreted by historians, novelists, dramatists and artists.

This film evaluates the authenticity of the earliest source, The Confessions of Nat Turner, assembled by white Virginia lawyer from jailhouse interviews. It then follows the history of the controversy over the Nat Turner story. Alvin Poussaint and Ossie Davis recall how Nat Turner became a hero in the Black community.

Running time: 60 minutes

There will be a discussion after the screening.
