I Am Not Your Negro - Raoul Peck #HRWFFLDN

When James Baldwin died in 1987, he left behind only 30 completed pages of a book that 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. In I Am Not Your Negro, filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished. The result is a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America - a journey into black history connecting the evolution of the Civil Rights movement to the current immediacy of #BlackLivesMatter. By confronting the deeper connections between the lives and assassination of these three leaders, Baldwin and Peck have created a work that challenges the very definition of what America stands for.
