The title puzzles me.

Does your title call for folks to "rise up" as Nat Turner's "legacy" is celebrated?

Or, are you suggesting that folks "rise up" in fulfillment of NT's legacy today?

The title of the documentary is "Rise Up: The Legacy of Nat Turner." I suspect that the title is a reference to what Nat Turner did. The documentary, which I have not seen so I obviously can't speak to its content, is about the legacy of Nat Turner.


I was wondering how you understood the title.

Your response certainly makes the meaning plain.
