“Violence. Brutality. It’s the same story, just a different name.”
20th Century Fox has released the first trailer for The Hate U Give, the critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller by Angie Thomas, a ripped from the headlines story that deals with one America’s most pressing and sadly common issues, the killing of a young black man by a white police officer.
[box type=”shadow” align=”” class=”” width=””]Starr Carter is constantly switching between two worlds: the poor, mostly black, neighborhood where she lives and the rich, mostly white, prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Now, facing pressures from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what’s right. [/box]
