Gerber & Gerber: The Birth of a Nation

Nat Turner's historic slave uprising is the subject of today's debate

Inspired by Siskel & Ebert, the city of Chicago, and some brotherly love comes Gerber & Gerber, a weekly web series starring Justin Gerber and Mac Gerber, who share their take on Hollywood’s newest films.

This week, the brothers dust off the history books with writer, actor, and director Nate Parker’s The Birth of a Nation. Starring Parker, Armie Hammer, Aja Naomi King, and Jackie Earle Haley, the story follows historical figure Nat Turner, who in 1831 led the largest slave uprising in American history.
