Aja Naomi King Discusses 'Birth of a Nation' Breakout Role: 'It's Pretty Insane'
Aja Naomi King rocks a leather skirt while attending Variety’s 10 To Watch Brunch and Panel during the 2016 Hamptons International Film Festival at Nick & Toni’s on Saturday (October 8) East Hampton, New York.
Aja stepped out in a purple dress the day before to promote her film The Birth of a Nation on Good Morning America, opening up about how much her role in the historical drama means to her.
“It’s pretty insane,” she told GMA. “Being a part of telling a story that is so crucial to understand about our history as black people in this country … it’s just so necessary and such a very visceral way for me and I’m just so grateful that I got to take on this part.”
