‘The Hate U Give’ Trailer: Amandla Stenberg Finds Empowering Voice In Adaptation Of Angie Thomas Novel

Considering the social climate and the mistreatment and unlawful murder of Black men, the story behind 20th Century Fox’s The Hate U Give is wildly — and regrettably — similar to the reality making headlines.

The uneasy balance between… Read
