Black Nativity

Black Nativity Release Date: November 27, 2013

The holiday-set musical Black Nativity stars Jacob Latimore in the role of Langston, a street-wise teen from Baltimore raised by a single mother, as he journeys to New York City to spend the Christmas holiday with his estranged relatives Reverend Cornell and Aretha Cobbs (Forest Whitaker and Angela Bassett). Unwilling to live by the imposing Reverend Cobbs’ rules, a frustrated Langston is determined to return home to his mother, Naima (Jennifer Hudson). Langston embarks on a surprising and inspirational journey and along with his new friends, and a little divine intervention, he discovers the true meaning of faith, healing, and family.

It is hard to believe – or is it? – that thirty-two year old Jennifer Hudson is playing a mother to a teenage boy.
