Actor, filmmaker Nate Parker is facing a firestorm of criticism after recently opening up about an

alleged rape case that he was acquitted of in 2001. Parker is director of the highly anticipated film “The Birth of a Nation,” an emotional portrayal of the freedom fighter Nat Turner, who led a rebellion that killed over 55 whites.

While a student at Penn State University in the late 1990s, he and wrestling teammate, Jean Celestin (the film’s co-writer) were charged and tried for the rape of a white classmate. Both Parker and Celestin maintain the sexual encounter was consensual. The accuser claimed it was not consensual because she was severely under the influence of alcohol. Although Parker was acquitted, Celestin was found guilty. His conviction was later appealed, and the prosecution overturned the case.
