A history-making film:

The 'The Birth of a Nation' actor turned director with the film of the same name. The movie made history at the 2016 Sundance film festival as Fox Searchlight Pictures acquired its distribution rights at $17.5 million, the highest ever paid for a movie.

Despite its promising plot and subject, the film couldn't find success with wider release and acclaim as the actor's rape allegations from a long time before re-surfaced.

Controversies:

Rape Allegations:

The 'Red tails' actor was accused of rape while attending Penn State University along with friend Jean Celestin. Parker was acquitted whereas Celestin was found guilty. The accuser committed suicide in 2012. The after-effects of the controversy affected not only his personal life and image but also his debut film as a director. 

He went on to write, direct and act in another movie 'American Skin' that was released in 2019. He is also associated with the film named 'Solitary'  in various capacities.

Marriage to a white woman:

Due to his films touching on the subject matter of racial injustice and its manifestations in society, he has a large African American fan following. 

He is regarded not only as a role model but also as a progressive political activist for the same cause which is why his marriage to white Sarah Disanto became a subject of heavy criticism and anger from fans. This came at a time when Disanto had just given birth to their fourth daughter, Justice, in 2016.

Despite such criticisms, Parker defends his wife wherever he can. He is often found saying that he loves his wife and he loves his fans too. 

She is 'The Perfect Partner':

Living a life amidst such judgment and criticism surely isn't easy but Sarah Disanto is raising parker's four black daughters, his sister's kids, and his other child as a family. That alone speaks volumes about the woman's grit and strength of character. 

Add to that, the rape allegations, controversies and their aftermath, and the Hollywood lifestyle, it is a miracle that they have found such stability in their marriage as they have been together for over a decade.
