Judas and the Black Messiah

Judas and the Black Messiah

“Judas and the Black Messiah,” starring Daniel Kaluuya as Black Panther Party chairman Fred Hampton, suddenly Judas and the Black Messiah became one of the most anticipated movies of the fall season when Warner Bros. dropped the first trailer earlier this week. But the casting of Kaluuya, a British-born actor, as an American civil rights has elicited some criticisms, a la Brits Cynthia Erivo as Harriet Tubman and David Oyelowo as Martin Luther King, Jr. But “Judas the Black Messiah” director Shaka King said that the casting comes from a “diasporic way of thinking.”

“I’m well aware of the debate around British actors playing American Black, iconic figures,” King said during a panel attended by Variety. “But I was born in America, my family is Caribbean and I have a South African name so I am, literally, emblematic of a diasporic way of thinking.”
