MO: There was no standing ovation. No round of applause. No grateful cheering. There was just silence. Silence as each audience member watched credits roll across a black screen filled with accolades, initially crediting one person: Director, screenplay writer, producer Nate Parker. The name flashed over and over again. I sat in the dark theater wondering if there was some alternative ending that everyone was anticipating because we all seemed to be waiting for an answer as to what we had just seen.
