Film Showing and Discussion of "I Am Not Your Negro." 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. Raoul 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 like this." Andy Zee, New York Revolution Books

But Larry Everest & Co. once expected me to be *their* neegro -- and thought that he was my Massa.

And they want Black people's *new* white 'God' to be Bob Avakian!

James Baldwin wouldn't give a *hoot* about that perennial local micro-cottage industry called the RCP -- Maoist poseurs -- & neither do I. What has the RCP ever done for Black people but just talk in cliches? After so many years, I've never even seen any Black people among their members in Berkeley. And as for Bob Avakian, I always used to laughingly ask Larry Everest, "WHERE'S 'WALDO'!!???"
