I Am Not Your Negro
Director: Raoul Peck. Featuring: James Baldwin. France/USA 2016. 94 mins.
With unprecedented access to James Baldwin’s original work, award-winning filmmaker Raoul Peck has completed the cinematic version of the book Baldwin never wrote – 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 and current denial and irrational relationship with race. Whilst it is partly anchored in the struggle for equality in the ’50s and ’60s, I Am Not Your Negro is about what it means to be black in America today.
