About the Event

Told entirely in the words of James Baldwin (novelist, playwright, essayist, civil rights activist and gay man) through both personal appearances and the text of his final unfinished book project, I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO touches on the lives and assassinations of Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Jr., and Medgar Evers to bring powerful clarity to how the image and reality of Blacks in America today is fabricated and enforced.

Director: Raoul Peck

Narrated by: Samuel L. Jackson.

'Thrilling...A portrait of one man's confrontation with a country that, murder by murder, as he once put it, 'devastated my universe'. - The New York Times.

'A cinematic seance...one of the best movies about the civil rights era ever made' - Guardian

'I Am Not Your Negro" turns James Baldwin into a prophet' - Rolling Stone

And a wonderful quote from James himself:

'History is not the past. It is the present. We carry our history with us. We are our history.'
