"Reflects upon the multiple ways in which Nat Turner's slave rebellion has been remembered and interpreted by historians, novelists, dramatists, and artists, through interspersed documentary footage, interviews, and dramatizations of different versions of the story using a different actor in each version. Evaluates the authenticity of the earliest source about the rebellion, "The Confessions of Nat Turner", assembled by a white Virginia lawyer from jailhouse interviews. It then follows the controversy over the Nat Turner story played out through history, including how Nat Turner became a hero in the Black community and the nature of race and memory in America. In conclusion, the film examines how the publication of William Styron's The Confessions of Nat Turner in the 1960s provoked one of the most bitter intellectual race battles of the decade."--Container
