Both new and select returning subscribers can get a free 2-month trial of Apple TV+ to celebrate the release of Will Smith’s new ‘Emancipation’ movie, which hits the streaming service on December 9th. This film retells the story of Peter (Will Smith), a man who escapes slavery and relies on his wits, faith as well as love for his family to elude hunters on his quest for freedom. Get it here now.
This film was actually inspired by the 1863 photos of ‘Whipped Peter’ that were taken during a Union Army medical examination. These photos first appeared in Harper’s Weekly and one in particular, known as ‘The Scourged Back,’ shows Peter’s bare back scarred by a whipping, which ultimately contributed to growing public opposition to slavery.
