In 1979, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, Remember This House. The book 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.

At the time of Baldwin’s death in 1987, he left behind only thirty completed pages of his manuscript.

Now, in his incendiary new documentary, master filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished. The result is a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America, using Baldwin’s original words and a flood of rich archival material. I Am Not Your Negro is a journey into black history that connects the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present of #BlackLivesMatter. It is a film that questions black representation in Hollywood and beyond. And, ultimately, by confronting the deeper connections between the lives and assassination of these three leaders, Baldwin and Peck have produced a work that challenges the very definition of what America stands for. (c) Magnolia Pictures Words by James Baldwin with the voice of Samuel L. Jackson.

A THRILLING DOCUMENTARY. Brilliantly edited, I Am Not Your Negro moves across time and space, seamlessly — insistently — sliding from the historical civil rights movement to more recent events. Mr. Peck is a consummate filmmaker who deserves a larger American audience. He’ll get it when I Am Not Your Negro opens….One of the best movies you are likely to see this year.

I Am Not Your Negro travels a straight, well-researched path from the darkest tragedies of American history to the ones that plague the country today.

A cinematic séance, and one of the best movies about the civil rights era ever made… A striking work of storytelling–I Am Not Your Negro isn’t a special interest title, it is a film. [Five Stars]
