Parker and his "The Birth of a Nation" co-writer Jean Celestin were accused of raping the student -- who subsequently committed suicide -- when the pair were roommates at Penn State University in 1999. "As her sister, the thing that pains me most of all is that in retelling the story of the Nat Turner slave revolt, they invented a rape scene," Sharon Loeffler wrote in a column for Variety magazine.
