I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO

I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO

Director: Raoul Peck
Year: 2016

I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO is an examination of racism in America through the lens of James Baldwin’s unfinished book, REMEMBER THIS HOUSE. Intended as an account of the lives of Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King, Jr., each of whom James Baldwin personally knew, only a 30-page manuscript of the book was ever completed. Combining Baldwin’s manuscript with footage of depictions of African-Americans throughout American history, I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO uses Baldwins words to illuminate the pervasiveness of American racism and the efforts to curtail it, from the civil rights movement to #BlackLivesMatter. Narrated by Samuel L. Jackson, I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO explores the continued peril America faces from institutionalized racism.
