Had the opportunity to attend the screening of The Hate You Give to celebrate the film’s release on DVD, Blu-Ray and all digital platforms. This film gives an opportunity to start the conversation on race with those in your family, community and your friends. This film had me laughing and crying, but it also provoked feelings on how this could be changed and what we as a community can do to change the narrative. After the screening there was a great Q&A with Russell Hornsby and moderated by CNN commentator Symone Sanders. In these Trump days it is important to have this conversation and show your kids how to conduct themselves out on these streets because it will get real, real quick and then what.
If you have not seen this amazing film directed by George Tillman Jr. make sure you buy it or stream it wherever you get your movies.
