The Cinema Society & 2(x)ist Screening Of "Twelve"*“Black Nativity” is in production right now with an all-star cast including Forest Whitaker, Angela Bassett, Jennifer Hudson, Tyrese, Nas and so many more.

But we recently learned via Wilson Morales’ BlackFilm.com that Grace Gibson, the daughter of actress Lynn Whitfield and director Brian Gibson, was added to the cast for her feature debut.

The film is a modern re-telling of Langston Hughes’ version of the Bible’s nativity story.

A street-wise teen from Baltimore, raised by a single mother, takes off to New York to spend Christmas with relatives.

During his stay, he learns a few things, stretches his comfort zone and discovers the true meaning of faith, healing and family.

Written and directed by Kasi Lemmons, the film will include music from Raphael Saadiq.
