“Nat Turner: A Troublesome Property”(2003)

  1. If you are non-white, pay close attention to the White commentators as they seek to explain Nat Turner. Put yourself in their position, what are you hearing, what are you feeling?
  2. If you are non-black, again pay attention to the Black commentators as they seek to explain Nat Turner. Put yourself in their position, what are you hearing, what are you feeling?
  3. How can we have empathy for those who face oppression because of race in this country? What is the role of the church in eliminating racial oppression? How could you/would you use this docu/drama in a discussion of race in your congregation?
