I Am Not Your Negro, is an award-winning documentary on the life and writings of James Baldwin. In 1979, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, Remember This House, which was to be a revolutionary, personal account of three assassinated leaders who were also his close friends—Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. At the time of Baldwin’s death in 1987, he left behind only thirty completed pages of his manuscript. Now, in his incendiary new documentary, master filmmaker Raoul Peck (Sometimes in April, Lumumba) envisions the book James Baldwin never finished. Using only Baldwin’s words, either spoken by the man himself or read by Samuel L. Jackson, and a flood of rich archival material, Peck has crafted a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America. I Am Not Your Negro is a poetic, eloquent and thought-provoking journey into black history that connects the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present of #BlackLivesMatter; it is a work that challenges the very definition of what America stands for. Academy Award nominee for Best Documentary Feature.
