As part of our film series, Reflection and Resistance: James Baldwin and Cinema, we are screening I Am Not Your Negro:
Race, power, and film collide in Raoul Peck’s invigorating look at the great writer James Baldwin, whose powerful investigations on American culture and racism were written decades ago, but whose “words matter now more than ever” (Manuel Betancourt, Esquire). Based on Baldwin’s unfinished manuscript Remember This House, which eulogized Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, and Medgar Evers, and his essays on Hollywood and race, I Am Not Your Negro may technically be telling the story of civil rights in 1960s America, but—through clips from Ferguson, Black Lives Matter, and more—it seems sorrowfully urgent and utterly necessary today.
