Amandla Stenberg Considered for 1940s Film
You can’t deny Amandla Stenberg’s rock power!
The very “woke” teen is lining up gigs left and right. After landing the leading role in Black Lives Matter-themed film, The Hate U Give, the emerging starlet is now being considered for a role in Amma Asante’s Where Hands Touch, Deadline reports.
Set in the 1940s, Where Hands Touch focuses on the relationship between a multi-racial German girl and an SS officer in Berlin.
The film is a passion project for Asante, who directed 2013’s Belle, which grossed over $16M.
Not only is Stenberg starring in projects, but she’s creating them too. Check out this one-on-one interview with EBONY.com where the budding actress discusses her upcoming comic series, Niobe and what #BlackGirlMagic means to her!
