The movie, “Emancipation” is a true story based on a runaway slaved portrayed by Smith. Peter is best known as “Whipped Peter” for the photo that shows him with keloid whip scars on his back. The film takes you through the journey of Peter and his escape.
The director Antoine Fuqua did a recent interview with Vanity Fair , he said, “The film to me is bigger than that moment. Four hundred years of slavery is bigger than one moment.
