Film showing: I Am Not Your Negro, directed by Raoul Peck Oscar nominated for best documentary feature 2017
"I am a witness to, and a survivor of, the latest slave rebellion."
James Baldwin, from a 1979 speech at UC Berkeley
Toward the end of his life, James Baldwin, novelist, essayist and poet, wrote notes for a book he had wanted to write about his three assassinated friends, Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King. Peck's film uses these notes to jump through time, in a blazing examination of the history of race in America.
"I Am Not Your Negro, an Oscar-nominated documentary by Raoul Peck, is a must see. If you think you know the reality of the brutal depth and horror of white supremacy in America, if you think you've seen it all and even if you have, you've not seen it delivered
Andy Zee, New York Revolution Books
