The Film

A "troublesome property" for his master, Nat Turner has remained a "troublesome property" for historians, novelists, dramatists, and others who have struggled to understand the leader of the famous 1831 slave rebellion. Using an innovative approach that combines documentary techniques, dramatic filmmaking, and historical methodology, this program explores how the many meanings of Nat Turner remain critical to understanding the racial history of our country.
