Members' Screening: I Am Not Your Negro

Members’ Screening: I Am Not Your Negro

27 May 2018

 
With unprecedented access to James Baldwin’s original work, award-winning filmmaker Raoul Peck has completed the documentary cinematic version of the novel that Baldwin never finished – a radical narration about race in America that tracks the lives and assassinations of Baldwin’s friends Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X and Medgar Evers. By confronting the deeper connections between the lives and assassinations of these three men, we uncover a larger narrative of America’s historical denial and irrational relationship with race.
 
While it is partly anchored in the struggle for equality in the 1950s and 60s, I Am Not Your Negro is a film about what it means to be black in America today.
