Miss Juneteenth, a project from debut filmmaker Channing Godfrey Peoples and starring Nicole Behari and Kendrick Sampson, fittingly premieres on Juneteenth.
Back in high school, Turquoise was crowned Miss Juneteenth and she desperately wants her daughter to win the pageant too.
BET spoke with Miss Juneteenth’s star Nicole Beharie (Sleepy Hollow, Black Mirror) about her relationship with the holiday, how she connects with the characters, and how she chooses roles.
Beharie: I am interested in playing a lot of different characters and working with different types of people.
Miss Juneteenth starring Nicole Beharie, Kendrick Sampson, and Alexis Chikaeze premieres on June 19th (Juneteenth) Digital and On Demand and will be available on all the major digital and VOD providers.
