Many people didn't know what was going to happen to Will Smith after slapping Chris Rock. It was bad and is still bad for the reputation of black men being seen s violent individuals and only resorting to violence as a means to get their point across. Will is now coming back to the big screen in a movie called Emancipation. Led by his unwavering faith in God and devotion to his family, Peter (Will's character) goes on a long journey avoiding slave catchers and more in the swamps of Louisiana. The film is inspired by the famous 1863 photo of “Whipped Peter,” an enslaved man who joined the Union Army in hopes of being reunited with his family. Director Antoine Fuqua commented on Smith raising the bar with his acting in the film. “Will [Smith] is on a whole different level, in this film. Incredible.” Emancipation follows Smith’s Oscar-winning role in 2021’s King Richard
