Nate Parker, star of “Beyond The Lights,” joined Roland Martin on “NewsOne Now” to discuss the film. “Beyond the Lights,” directed by Gina Prince Bythewood (“Love & Basketball”) premieres in theaters Friday, November 14th, and also stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Danny Glover, Machine Gun Kelly and features a cameo by TV One’s own, Roland Martin.

During his appearance on TV One’sNewsOne Now,” Parker discussed the nature of his role as opposed to how young African American men are portrayed in the media saying, “… contrary to popular belief Black men can love too. They can respect women, they can have integrity.”

He went on to tell Martin, “There is an opportunity to show that we’re more than what you hear in some of the music. We’re more than what you see projected on some of these shows. So, for me, it was an opportunity to show that you can be cool and still love a woman. Stand in the gap for her and support her needs, provide a safe place for her.”

Check out Parker and Martin’s conversation about “Beyond The Lights” in the clip above. Go out and support the film this weekend.

Be sure to listen to “NewsOne Now” with Roland Martin, weekdays at 7 a.m. EST and watch at 9 a.m. EST on TV One.
