About this event

One of the most acclaimed films of 2017, and an Oscar nominee for Best Documentary, I Am Not Your Negro envisions the book James Baldwin never finished. The book was supposed to explore the lives of his three friends- who were all assassinated- Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. The result is a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America, The film uses Baldwin’s original words, spoken by Samuel L. Jackson, and with a flood of rich archival material.

One of the values of the film is that it is deathless even though James Baldwin died some 30 years ago in 1987, his work and the film is relentlessly relevant because of the fact that the underlying social, political, economic, cultural and psychological issues that he addressed through his writings are still very much a part of our society.
