Set against the antebellum South, THE BIRTH OF A NATION follows Nat Turner (Nate Parker), a literate slave and preacher, whose financially strained owner, Samuel Turner (Armie Hammer), accepts an offer to use Nat’s preaching to subdue unruly slaves. As he witnesses countless atrocities - against himself and his fellow slaves - Nat orchestrates an uprising in the hopes of leading his people to freedom.

Heavenly Father, we come to thank you for your word and your will. 
You listen to him, and you might just make it into heaven. 
Submit yourselves to your masters in all respect.  
Brethren, I pray you sing a new song. 
Sing praise in assembly of the righteous. Let the saints be joyful in glory. Let the high praise of God be on the mouths of the saints, and the two-edge sword in their hand to execute vengeance on the demonic nations. And punishments on those peoples. To bind their kings with chains. This honor have all His saints. Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord! Sing to Him a new song! 
(Lyrics) Southern trees 
Bear a strange fruit 
Blood on the leaves 
And blood at the roots 
Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze 
Strange fruit hangin' 
From the Poplar trees
