Dedicated to the "future memory of white supremacy," Manifest Destiny Jesus is a clever Seattle-area documentary which juxtaposes interviews with artists, religious figures, and community members to examine the links between the historically dubious representation of Jesus as white, the crucifixion, lynching, police brutality, and gentrification. It finds inspiration in a transracial family, a sermon by a Black female theologian, and a uniquely integrated Seattle congregation.
