The drama “American Skin” invites the audience to glance into the social injustices of a war veteran and the fight to win his lost son back from the violence of the police system. 

“American Skin” was originally released in 2019, but had only recently been released in the United States on Jan. 19, 2021.

Nate Parker worked on the film as an amazing writer, director and captivating actor in his role as Lincoln “Linc” Jefferson. 

In the movie, Linc [Nate Parker] explores a grim reality facing disenfranchised African Americans, tastefully serving it with the signature dash of Spike Lee. 

Throughout the entire movie, the suspense was held in the balance of the jury in a sensitive case, created by Linc [Parker] and many of his family members to reach justice. 

It was gripping, well written and worth every second of your attention.  

With the havoc of the world today, this movie demands to be seen. 

Police violence is a leading cause of death for young men in the United States and about 1 in every 1,000 Black men can expect to be killed by police, according to the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America.
