I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO: JAMES BALDWIN DOCUMENTARY TRAILER!!!
In 1979, Author/Activist JAMES BALDWIN wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, REMEMBER THIS HOUSE!!!
The book was to be a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and successive assassinations of three of 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 this manuscript.
I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO is the incendiary new documentary film by Filmmaker RAOUL PECK, who envisions the book JAMES BALDWIN never finished.
The result is a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America, using Baldwin’s original words and flood of rich archival material.
I Am Not Your Negro is a journey into black history that connects the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present of #BlackLivesMatter. It is a film that questions black representation in Hollywood and beyond.
And, ultimately, by confronting the deeper connections between the lives and assassination of these three leaders, Baldwin and Peck have produced a work that challenges the very definition of America.
