Emperor (2020)

Posted by Lisa on

Emperor is inspired by the legend of Shields “Emperor” Green (Dayo Okeniyi), a descendant of African kings turned outlaw slave in the pre-Civil War South. Seeking freedom for his family, Emperor fights his way north, joining the daring raid on Harper’s Ferry and helping alter the course of American history.
