It was the kind of place where in a junior high school art class, three white boys drew and displayed pictures of Black people with nooses around their necks. An embarrassed teacher scrambled to remove them, but failed to address the effect on Prince-Bythewood directly. Her well-intentioned parents advised her to ignore the negativity and bullying. “They saw me as their daughter, not their Black daughter,” Prince-Bythewood says, “So they thought the whole world should feel that way.” To help her cope, she tried to fade into the background, except when she played sports, at which she excelled. Years later, the former UCLA track star credits sports, “which teach you to outwork everybody,” as her lifeline during that time and for giving her the self-esteem, discipline, and grit that have served her well in her role as a director. “She has these mantras, like, ‘Fall down seven times, get up eight,’” says Lena Waithe, who was at one point her assistant. “That’s how Gina approaches things: like an athlete. She has five seconds to go and she always remains hyper-focused.”
That intensely personal story drew from her own biography. Prince-Bythewood was adopted at the age of six weeks by a Chicago couple, a mom who is Salvadoran and father who is Irish. (Prince-Bythewood is the biological child of a white mother and Black father.) Shortly afterward, they moved to Pacific Grove, California, a socioeconomically mixed coastal town with few African Americans. She says, “It was tough. I felt like I was on an island trying to hide myself,” hyperaware that she was not reflected in her family or environment. “I was always reminded of my otherness.”
Three years after Love & Basketball, she intended to direct an adaptation of Wally Lamb’s I Know This Much Is True, but the plan was derailed in part by A-list actors who reportedly refused to work with a new director. Disheartened, she pivoted to successfully adapt Sue Monk Kidd’s book The Secret Life of Bees. “Then I decided to write Beyond the Lights and spent two years doing that. Again, every studio turned it down,” she says. (Beyond the Lights was eventually made into a film starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw as an unhappily constrained pop star.) She and Roxane Gay cowrote a script based on Gay’s 2014 debut novel, An Untamed State, about a kidnapping and torture in Haiti, which Fox Searchlight bought and then backed away from. Says Prince-Bythewood: “Roxane and I wrote a great script based on that book, and what we turned in was no different than what we pitched. They knew [what] they were getting. But I think there was some fear.” The project was returned to her, and she hopes to find a home for it.
