Revue of THE HATE U GIVE

The Hate U Give is adapted from the book by Angie Thomas with same title about Starr Carter (Amandla Stenberg) who is constantly switching between two worlds –the poor, mostly black neighborhood where she lives and the wealthy, mostly white prep school that she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is soon shattered when she witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend at the hands of a police officer. Facing pressure from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and decide to stand up for what’s right.
