The Musical ‘Black Nativity’ is like a coming of age story of a street-wise young man named Langston being raised by his single mother trying to make ends meet. Langston is from Baltimore and is sent to spend the holidays with his relatives Reverend Cornell and Aretha Cobbs in NYC. Dealing with typical teen angst Langston doesn’t want to abide by the rules of his relatives household and decides he wants to go back home to his mother. The journey along the way helps him realize the meaning of faith, healing, and family. The movie is directed by Kasi Lemmons.
