On Wednesday, The Longshots star turned heads in a bright green suit on her way to Jimmy Kimmel Live!.
Keke Palmer stopped by the studio to promote her latest movie, Alice, which tells the story of a young woman trapped in slavery in an 1800s Georgia plantation.
Alice escapes into the woods after a violent confrontation with her brutal and disturbed owner Paul (Jonny Lee Miller), and comes across a highway, only to realize that she has been transported to the year 1973.
Is Keke Palmer’s Alice based on a true story?
The crime thriller is inspired by real-life stories of black Americans who remained enslaved even after then-President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863.

Mae Louise Walls Miller’s life is the primary example on which the story is based. She remained in bondage until 1961, when she fled the plantation and was rescued by a kind family.
Miller and her family were unaware of the change in circumstances since they had no access to outside information and assumed that their situation was the norm for all black people.
The film sheds light on this dark period of American history and serves as a poignant reminder of the struggles faced by many African Americans.

Keke Palmer told Jimmy Kimmel that she recently took her younger twin siblings, Lawrence and Lawrencia, to a strip club in Vegas.
“They just turned 21, and I took them to Vegas… I felt like it was fun,” she said. “He had his girlfriend with him and started, like trying to check compatibility charts with the strippers, so that was a little weird.”
