The Birth of a Nation presents the philosophy and craft behind the making of the film, situating the film's relevance not only within cinematic history but also within the greater dialog of race, subjugation, and resistance. In addition to "My Journey with Nat Turner" by writer/director Nate Parker, the book will also feature "The Unbroken Chain of Enslaved African Resistance and Rebellion" by Erica Armstrong Dunbar and Daina Ramey Berry, "Slavery and (In)Justice During the Nat Turner Rebellion: History and Legacy of the 'Rule of Law' in America" by Alfred L. Brophy, "Nat Turner at the Crossroads: African Iconography and Cosmologies in The Birth of a Nation" by Kelley Fanto Deetz, PhD, and "Why Nat Turner Matters: The Importance of History in Contemporary Consciousness" by Brian Favors, MEd.
More than just a tie-in, this book seeks to educate the listener as to Nat Turner's legacy and influence. By bringing together an array of artists and intellectuals, this book speaks directly to Turner's importance throughout history and especially his relevance to contemporary social relations.

This guy Nate Parker is officially my new fave!!!!
This audible book journalizes the superb movie, Nate Parker's 'Birth of a Nation'. It's an excellent account of the behind the scenes road to accomplishment of this powerful story of the hero white Americans never want to acknowledge. (I wonder why.) Thanks Nate. Seriously: Thanks fam!!!!
