A film of immense power

The Guardian

In 1979, 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 his manuscript. Now, in his incendiary new documentary, master filmmaker Raoul Peck 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, a treasure trove of rich archival material and narrated by Samuel L Jackson. 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. Questioning black representation and the very definition of what America stands for.
