Black Nativity Movie Online
After his mother, Naima, is evicted from their Baltimore apartment, teenage Langston is sent to spend the holidays with his estranged grandparents in New York City. When he arrives in the city he just misses his grandparents and shortly after is robbed of his possessions. Entering a hotel to get directions to his grandparents place he tries to take a wallet and is quickly taken in by the police. While in the holding cell he meets a man who makes fun of him for stealing wallets. Shortly after Langston is reunited with his grandfather, the Reverend Cobb, who takes him to his home. Langston is taken aback by the comfortable home his grandparents live in and by the fact that they know nothing about him and his mother Naima. In an attempt to bond with Langston the Reverend shows him a pocket watch with a personalized inscription from Martin Luther King, Jr. Langston pockets the watch that night and in the morning tires to pawn it off. However the pawnshop owner is a friend of his grandfather's and refuses to buy it, telling him to treasure the pocket watch and return it to his grandfather. Outside the pawnbroker's shop he meets the man he met in the holding cell passing out flyers for the pawkbroker who offers to procure for him whatever he wants. Langston asks him for a gun. Langston tries to talk to his grandmother, Aretha, about why his mother left. She denies that he was the cause of the rift but says that his father was the reason behind their estrangement. Despite his reluctance to attend church, Aretha and the Reverend pressure him to attend church as they are performing Langston Hughes' Black Nativity play. While there Langston falls asleep and dreams that he is a part of the nativity, with Maria, a young pregnant woman he met earlier, playing the part of the virgin Mary. Waking up, Langston leaves the church to meet with the man he met in the jail cell. The man shows him the gun he wanted and Langston takes it from him and then tries to hold him up, asking him to give him a ring he spotted earlier in the display case and all the cash in the pawnbroker's cash register. Instead the man quotes A Dream Deferred to him and reveals that he is Langston's father, Tyson. A passing police officer spots the two and enters, but Langston's father convinces him that they were only having an argument and Langston was only trying to convince him to go to church with him. The police officer then drives them to the church where they meet Naima.
