Film: I Am Not Your Negro (2016)
Dir: Raoul Peck
Running time: 94 mins
Starring Samuel L. Jackson, I Am Not Your Negro is a journey into black history that connects the Civil Rights movement to the present #BlackLivesMatter movement. The critically acclaimed film takes on the unfinished and revolutionary personal account of James Baldwin’s Remember This House about the lives and successive assassinations of three of his close friends: Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr.
Master filmmaker Raoul Peck has created a film that questions black representation in Hollywood and beyond and, ultimately challenges the very definition of what America stands for.
