I want to slap the hell out of that jerk with the white beard.

I would like to share the freedom this movie is giving me. When Amanda was bickering that her mother didn't love her + gave her up Julia replied 'You don't know the life of being bought & sold' 'You know freedom' & 'That's all I could ever want for my child' ... this is the freedom I have in Christ. I may not have known freedom before I had bought into fears insecurities and imperfect parents & dealing with wretched people but God has bought my freedom so that I don't have to be bound to the chains in my mind, of my past etc. If anyone understands & receives healing, pass this along. & Share here any other movie that u would recommend, thank u & God bless

1:22 the unconscionable sin - give his property to a 'bastard' child of negro blood. yup

He did not love her in the beginning, or he wouldn't have raped her. But he came to love, respect and trust her. People can change.

And so, so many ppl fathered by the slave 'owners' were never recognized & got absolutely nothing from their 'father's'. sooo glad that era is over. & I have seen more than one vid of OBAMA bragging about being the 1st KENYAN pres. of the United States, as well as about his Muslim faith & the "sweetest sound (I've) ever heard is the morning call to prayer". Yet he & Emanuel helped the pain of the slave era raise it's ugly head by making several different race situations worse while he was in office. one of which ISIS was involved in in Missouri, I believe it was. But he blamed it on whites even though ISIS left their sign there! some of you would have seen yhat, also. shame on him! Let it all heal. this is now, a new era in which WE can make peace. may our Holy God be with you all. Let Him have His way.

I do appreciate you posting the heart-wrenching nostalgic movie... Jennifer is quite an actress, isn't she ? Not just a Flashdance motion picture star.... No seriously... versatile and witty lady... As far as the film is concerned well a bit disappointment... classical Georgian saga so to speak. Nihil novi sub sole. But still poignantly told. Thank you again....

folks have the RIGHT to leave property to whomever they choose. they have the DUTY to take care of family, especially if in need. that greedy, worthless brother had moe than he needed, was given more still, and could not stand to have anyone else get anything. such ugly greed will always make some excuse if not race, will manufacture immaginary wrongs and resentments. usually is is the one with the greed, not the need, who inherits. nice to see it turn out different for once...

Well you really have to respect the lawyer who took this case in such a racist time..he risked his own life.
Diane M Kuchins, too (11 days ago)
yes. according to this movie, he had been offered a short cut to career advancement as a covert bribe by the opposing councel to sabotage the case. since he did not, his career most likely suffered...lost money, status, power, etc.

I just finished watching A House Divided. I thoroughly enjoyed it and especially Jennifer Beals' character. It was especially noteworthy as it was a true story.
Kay Carter (18 days ago)
Rape is rape and pedophilia is pedophilia and slavery is slavery. This movie has it all. Sick that they twisted his rape of a young slave girl and tried to make it a love story.
white people try to romanticize rape as if it was consensual or a love relationship. sick creatures.

Interesting———I saw this as a child and now watching I see why some light skinned women lied to get work- it is a shame that African people have had to endure such horrors upon their lives- THEFT of their bodies from their homeland and families, then abject slavery, then oppression and through it all up unto today we are prey for racist cops, skinheads, kkk and alt right mentalities. This is not the way life is supposed to be lived. I never thought I would live to see a Black President, but I have. I had hoped by now we would have passed the racist stage but it is still alive and well. We need to put the Great Mother Creatress back into the equation of our Cosmology. We have been turned away from Her. This is something the Mother and Mothers can fix if you want peace and a healthy planet. But you must return to Her for it to happen. Put Her back on Her throne and things will change for the better.

Amanda America Dixon (Jennifer Beals) is the daughter of a Southern plantation owner, but she is ignorant of her mixed racial heritage. In the days following the Civil War, her father, David Dixon (Sam Waterston), raped a teenage slave, impregnating her and leading to Amanda's birth. Years later, upon David's death, Amanda is to inherit his estate. However, her uncle (Ron White) tries to contest the will due to Amanda's race, while lawyer Charles Dubose (Tim Daly) defends her in court. Nominations: Satellite Award for Best Actress in a Mini-Series & Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television,

Jennifer beals is so beautiful! And she's actually half black! Which made her perfect for the role.

For anyone who doesn't understand white privilege, notice that the brother received quite a but in his brother's will. But because he didn't receive what "he" thought he should've, he had the nerve to lash out on his niece like she wrote the will.... He felt entitled and notice how he reacted at 5:50.....a good example of white privilege..

When does she know Julia is her mother., I want to see her reaction then!!!
ja gibs (1 month ago)
to Lynn coffe...what are you stupid. Amandas black mother was very smart. she was the one who built the wealth in that family. Julia Francis Simms. Dickson could not have done it without her. that's why he left the bulk of the wealth to his daughter. He was really giving it to Julia Simms. but racist southern law prevented a white man to leave his wealth to a black. Dickson believe if he left it to his daughter amanda. Julia Simms would receive part once it was known she was the mother of Amanda america dickson. remember the letter that was read from Dickson by Amanda at the beginning.

I DON'T HATE I DON'T JUDGE, BECAUSE NO MATTER IF BLACK OR WHITE WE HAVE THE SAME BLOOD FLOWING THROUGH OUR VEINS. MAY GOD BLESS EVERYONE AND ALWAYS KEEP US SAFE, AND PLEASE LIFE IS TOO SHORT, TO HATE AND TO JUDGE ONE ANOTHER. THE BLACK PEOPLE SUFFER A LOT. AND TO THINK THAT THIS COUNTRY WAS CREATED UNDER CHRISTIANITY, TO SERVE GOD AND TO KEEP THE COMMAMENDS, THAT GOD WROTE IN THE BIBLE. WHEN I WAS A LITTLE GIRL BACK IN THE ISLAND OF CUBA, MY GRANDPARENTS HAD SLAVES, AND NOT ONCE THEY WERE MISTREAT IT. MY MOTHER ALWAYS TOLD ME THAT THEY USED TO SEAT AND HAVE SUPPER TOGETHER. BUT THAT WAS BACK IN CUBA. I CAME TO THIS COUNTRY IN THE 60S, AND FROM WHAT I REMEMBER, IT'S WAS VERY SAD. I JUST NEVER UNDERSTAND WHY WE AS HUMANS BEING CAN GET ALONE. BUT IT'S OK BECAUSE TIME WILL COME THAT WE WILL MEET OUR MAKER. WICH IS GOD ALL MIGHTY. THANK YOU. MILAGROS MOGRO FROM FL

Isnt it ironic that in the past that it was considered taboo to have a mixed race child because of prejudice and racism. The past few decades its become the norm in our society where very few even seem to care. This shows that our society has evolved towards the acceptance and less racism. . A lot of black mothers actually plan the births of their children to have a light skinned daddy so their children will have lighter skin and straight hair, while others still see it as a negative .In turn, there are white mothers who choose darker skinned men to father their children. For our society to grow and evolve we must make the necessary changes ,not just physical ones,but from our hearts as well. We can only hope and teach our children to accept and love others as we do ourselves so future generations wont be as close minded and prejudiced . Great movie with awesome actors.thanks for sharing. 😀🙏❤️

Thank you for this posting this movie. Julia's response to her rape shows what immense emotional strength women living in enslavement must have to recover from being broken in that way. Only the strong survived to past on the genes that flows in the veins of black ppl living today. We need to be as mentally strong today.

can't understand why black folks perpetuate the use of the term "uppity". why not use assertive or some other accurate and value neutral term??? women's movement was right to identify disrespectful description of women's assertiveness as a power/play, repression tactic. why play into that???

This happened many times. I read the journal of a young slave who had a baby by the plantation owner. Her children were born with white skin so, the plantation owner and his wife ripped her children out of her arms and raised them as their own. She talked about how they called her racist names and spit on her yet, she never told them who she was because she didn’t want them to live how she lived or hate themselves for being part black. Truly heartbreaking.

it's so disgusting to see how so many white men treated "colored girls" back then! It's one thing to treat them like animals, it's an entirely different thing to take their dignity as females and use them for sexual pleasure! Such a double standard! They're good enough to have sex with and pleasure oneself with but not good enough to eat with or anything else! Not even allowed to use the same facilities, but good enough to fondle and penetrate apparently! Makes me SOOOO angry!

HATE TO BURST YOUR BUBBLE BUT IF YOU STUDY EUROPEAN/WORLD HISTORY YOU WILL FIND THAT OFTEN THE LORD OF THE MANOR/SULTAN/et al IMPREGNATED A SERVANT GIRL WITH THE SAME RESULTS.HOW ABOUT THE TREATMENT OF WOMEN IN THE MIDDLE EAST THEN AND NOW? IT IS INTERNATIONAL INHUMANE TREATMENT. IT IS A MAN THING NOT A RACE THING.

He was a creep. There was nothing beautiful about him raping a child. SMH. I thought it was a relationship from the comments but what i just saw was not a relationship. She was horrified. I'm sure there were a rare few of relationships but not that one. But at least himand his mother loved the daughter and gave her a good life.
Tiana A (3 months ago)
I keep coming back to this movie and I get so emotional everytime because I keep forgetting certain parts. Such great acting in this movie. It was a weird kind of love and support floating in the background, people really kept their emotions and feelings to themselves back then and that's what makes it tougher, when the truth all comes out. Keeping the truth a secret can be just as hard as speaking the truth but only one of them makes your soul feel better in the end ♥

i work as a deputy sometime i worked in court room . we had a judge he never let the true father sign away his rights making the child a so called bastard child- he had the fathers give them their name then they could sign rights of the child away, and father would not be held to pay child support. this was rare cause mother could not get any government support by letting father walk away. these mothers just wanted to get away from the father. fathers didnt want to pay or have anything to do with child. in 30years about 4-5 times
