Common talks about Greek life diversity in his upcoming Netflix film 'Burning Sands'

WATCH | Executive producer Common and actor Trevor Jackson discuss the importance of highlighting the black male experience in a black fraternity at a historically black college at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival premiere of Burning Sands  in Park City, Utah.


Burning Sands  takes audiences on a raw, voyeuristic journey of fraternity pledging through the eyes of one favored pledgee (Trevor Jackson), who is torn between honoring a code of silence or standing up against the intensifying violence of underground hazing.

This Netflix Original, directed by Gerard McMurray, focuses on a black fraternity at a historically black college.

Actors Alfre Woodard ("Luke Cage") and Serayah McNeill ("Empire") also star in the film.

I love seeing stories that we haven't seen before, and seeing black people in different ways.

Circa's Kay Angrum snaps a selfie with executive producer Common. He wrote an original song for the film, called "The Cross."

At the base of it is love and unity, and that's what we need in the world right now.
