Mathew Knowles’ story is about to be shared on movie and television screens.
His memoir “Racism From The Eyes Of A Child,” has been greenlit to be turned into a movie and a TV series. In the memoir, Knowles speaks on the things that he had experienced while growing up in Alabama including race riots, protests, discrimination, and more traumatic events.
The book also speaks on how his parents as well as historical figures like Dr.Martin Luther King Jr. helped shape his manhood. In an interview, he spoke about his influences and said, “These are the men who made me proud and women who taught me to fight back.”
The movie is set to cover the first half of his book, where he recalls what it was like being one of six Black students to attend an all-white school, as well as the other challenges he faced. The film will be produced by Say Unkel Entertainment and the script is reportedly completed.
Mathew Knowles was able to turn his pain into triumph for himself and his daughters, Beyoncé and Solange Knowles. He has many accolades under his belt, including two undergraduate degrees, an MBA, a PhD, and a Professional Development Certification from Harvard.
There is no word on when we can expect to see this film come to theaters, however, we will keep you posted when new updates become available.
