Will Smith Movie ‘Emancipation’ Abandons Georgia Over Voting Restrictions Antoine Fuqua and Will Smith are moving their big budget film, Emancipation, out of Georgia. They are doing this in protest to Georgia’s controversial new voting restrictions. In a joint statement they said, we can not in good conscience provide economic support to a government that enacts regressive voting laws that are designed to restrict voter access. Emancipation is described as a runaway slave thriller.  How do you feel about organizations boycotting Georgia in light of the new voter law?
