The Hate U Give is adapted from the novel "The Hate U Give" by Angie Thomas published in 2017. It is after the death of the young Oscar Grant at Fruitvale Station in 2009 that the young woman, then a student, writes a short story on police violence against the African-American population. A few years later, as the country faced other such events that led to the birth of the Black Lives Matter protest movement, she decided to make it a book through which she could express her entire life anger: "The Hate U Give" is a real card and Hollywood offers the rights quickly.
