We, at ScreenFish, believe that we are all created in God’s image and want to show our support where we can to those in the Black Community who continue to battle against systemic racism. While our team strives for diversity, we can always do better ourselves in giving voice to those who need the chance to speak out and be heard.
Set in the heat of the late 1960s, Judas and the Black Messiah follows Bill O’Neal (Lakeith Stanfield), a young man pressured by the FBI to infiltrate the Black Panther party. As he grows closer to the Party’s charismatic Chairman Fred Hampton (Daniel Kaluuya), O’Neal becomes torn between the government who holds his future and the leader that he is drawn towards. This week, Jordan Thoms and I discuss the relationship between revolution and violence and the meaning of the Black Messiah.
