The new and (hopefully) improved Birth of a Nation opens Thursday night at the Lake Theatre. A lot of people did a double-take when these previews started hitting the screens. The first version, 100 years ago (1915), was notoriously racist. This version, reportedly, is exactly the opposite, a depiction of the Nat Turner slave uprising. Should be interesting.
