A memoir by Beyonce‘s father Mathew Knowles is set to be adapted into a feature film and a tv series.
According to Variety, Knowles recently announced that he inked a deal with production company Say Unkel Entertainment to adapt his memoir “Racism From the Eyes of a Child” into both a film and a limited series.
The first half of Knowles’ memoir will be covered in the feature film, recounting his early years growing up in Alabama during the sixties and the race riots, where he was one of six Black students to attend an all-white school.
The book also discusses how Martin Luther King Jr., Albert Turner, and Ralph Abernathy, who helped fight for equal rights, shaped him in his early years.
“These are the men who made me proud and women who taught me to fight back,” Knowles told Variety.
Robert Unkel, a former VP of Programming at 20th Century Fox, has revealed that the script for the feature is complete. Unkel will oversee the development of the project with producer Howard Kazanjian.
