VIDEO – Actor, Filmmaker Nate Parker to Establish Film School at Wiley – Tyler, Longview, Jacksonville |ETX News

Nate Parker, star of ‘The Great Debaters’ and director of the feature film ‘The Birth of a Nation’ is seeking to establish a film school at Wiley College. The school will pilot a film institute this summer with 30 selected students from Wiley and local high schools.

“You control the moving picture, you control the masses. So really getting them rallied around the idea of re-claiming the narrative of America, specifically through the eyes of people of color,” Parker said.

  1. This is great and I would love to see more of our black actors and actresses put money into our HBCUs for the Arts. Parker is dead on – when you control what they see you influence the masses. Great job, Wiley should thank Parker by giving him the first Honorary Degree from the newly established school.
