Giving Back To Her Faith

Reina King is a very devoted and religious woman. She has no issues with using her excess funds to donate to her faith. She believes in giving back to causes that she supports. She was the executive producer of black religious film called “Let the Church Say Amen”. The film was based on the best-selling novel by ReShonda Tate Billingsley. The film was so highly acclaimed that it was included in the First Annual International Faith & Family Film Festival at Mega Fest 2013.

The film struck a chord with Reina because of the plot of the story. In the film, a young woman named Rachel Jackson played by Naturi Naughton is the daughter of a preacher who is having a troubled life but is making attempts at fixing herself. She was raising a six year old son on her own and only had a high school diploma to her name. In the film, Rachel’s goal is to marry the father of her son so that she can form a traditional family. It is her wish to follow in tradition so that her father will respect her for being a righteous woman of God.

In an interview with After the Alter Call, the writer of the book, ReShonda Tate Billingsley spoke about her inspiration for writing the novel and how it felt to make a film with likes of the King sisters and Queen Latifah. When asked if she ever imagined that her novel would eventually become a movie, ReShonda said, “When I first start writing, I don’t do it with a movie in mind, but of course, like many authors, I dream for all of them to be on the big screen. It just doesn’t play a role in my writing process.”


ReShonda got some big time players involved in her film. She had no secrets to share and was happy to be open about the whole process of how she attracted so many powerful figures in the African American entertainment circle, “By being nice. I know that sounds like a cliché but I bought a book for a woman who didn’t have enough money for a book. She gave it to her sister who worked for an airport bookstore. One day, Juanita Bynum was in that store and the sister convinced Rev. Bynum to buy my book. Long story short, she did, loved it and got in touch with me to ask my permission to take it to Hollywood. “

Her novel had such a strong effect on Reina King and the other producers that they even ended up buying the rights to her other work, “The journey to where I am today was a long one, as we’ve had several delays over the years, funding issues, and normal “movie delays.” But Regina King, who was set to direct the movie and her sister/business partner Reina King, believed in the project and kept fighting for it. Eventually, they partnered with Queen Latifah’s Flava Unit and got a deal with BET, who was getting into original programming. They bought four of my other novels, including “Everybody Say Amen,” “Say Amen, Again,”and “I Know I’ve Been Changed.””
