What history flipped the script on slavery and the Africans kept slaves? “Cracka” explores this alternative non-reality.
In the trailer of the movie, which is slated for a fall 2020 release, the protagonist – tatted with racist Nazi symbols – begins to harass an African American motorist. It is at that point that the violence starts. After the lead character rains down blows on the motorist, the pseudo-Nazi returns to his home. He then finds himself staring at the barrel of a shotgun and enslaved.
“Cracka” then relives all of the horrors of slavery such as rape, beatings, and even name changes. The series stars a bevy of talents including Lorenzo Antonucci, Hakeen Kae-Kazim, rapper Saigon, Kathryn Kates, and James Darnell.
The cast isn’t simply Black people perpetrating the same sick injustices as their counterparts.
“Cracka doesn’t just tackle racism; it confronts it in a way you can’t possibly imagine. This unique series forces us – as a people, society, and overall a collective human unit – to look past color, look past our fears and pain, and see ourselves as people through the much-needed lens of love.”
The series does not have a date but is expected to hit in the fall of 2020, just in time for the American presidential election.
