An native Black American should be the only one playing this role. It's an American film, for American audiences and to do otherwise treats ethnic groups as if they are interchangeable regardless of their history or frame of mind. It's rude and disrespectful. There are plenty of Black Americans that can play this role. Let Hollywood, Kasi Lemmons, and Cynthia Erivo know that we will not watch a film starring a very likely descendant of the Nigerian slave traders who sold Harriet's family in the first place. Black immigrants in England need to fight for their own self interest, not eat the fruit of native Black Americans. Stop being weak, selfish, cowards.

Rosa On tonight's show (10-24-2018), Yvette mentioned the book, "Reconstruction Updated Edition: America's Unfinished Revolution, 1863-1877 (Harper Perennial Modern Classics)" by Eric Foner. She also mentioned that she has finally gotten "Barracoon" by Zora Neale Hurston.
