Unique Two Nations



My name is Ruby Lee Thigpen Whitehurst and I am the CEO, Screenwriter, and Producer of an amazing film titled Two Nations, which portrays the origin of my North Carolina family. Two Nations is directed by Mark Ridley, Writer, Producer and Director of "Stolen Breath," and Two Nations stars the Legendary Native American actor, Saginaw Grant, with a special appearance by legendary singer, Milton Bullock of the Platters.

This film is unique for many reasons:

*Two Nations features never before seen scenes.

*It is the first film to show the positive relationship between Native Americans, African Slaves, and White Settlers during colonial times.

*It is the first film to star and co-star authentic Native American, African, and Black American actors wherein they are cast in lead roles.

*It is the first film based on a family legend regarding my community which is located in Jamesville, Martin County, North Carolina.

*It is the first film with a large diverse cast of actors i.e. Native American, Black American, Taino/Puerto Rican, African American, White American, Chinese American, Japanese American, Mexican American, Lebanese, Native Canadians, Senior Citizens, and Veterans.

*It is the first film that shows the courtship and marriage between a Native American man and a runaway slave.

*It is the first film that shows a Native American Chief that accepts people of various tribes and races into his village.

*It is the first film that shows the participation of Native Americans in the Underground Railroad.

*It is the first film that shows White Settlers escaping indentured servitude and going to live with Native Americans.

*It is the first film that shows Africans resisting and attacking a slave ship.

*It is the first film that showcases North Carolina, Eastern Woodland People.

*It is the first film that shows Native Americans tracking and trying to return runaways slaves to slaveholders.

*It is the first film that shows Native Americans, Africans, and White Settlers living in harmony.

*It is the first film that shows Native Americans still living on their natural homeland, while still practicing original customs and traditions even into the 21st century.

Two Nations The Legend.


Two Nations is inspired by Loves Soft Voice, a story based on family legend by Ruby Lee Thigpen Whitehurst.

The book started as a 3 page short story,  over 25 years ago as a college assignment.

Honoring My Ancestors.


The great storytellers in my family often shared amazing stories especially my maternal grandmother, Virginia Caroline Boston and her siblings, my great aunts and uncles. They grew up during a time when families shared family time together. Often, they gathered around a nice warm fire and listened as the Old Ones shared legends and ghost stories, on cold, dark, winter nights.
