Film Screening: I Am Not Your Negro

Part of Black History Month

Hearthside Lounge (Room 2313)

February 12, 2018

1-3 p.m.


Archive Story


The film "I Am Not Your Negro" envisions the book James Baldwin never finished, a radical narration about race in America, using the writer's original words, as read by actor Samuel L. Jackson. Alongside a flood of rich archival material, the film draws upon Baldwin's notes on the lives and assassinations of Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to explore and bring a fresh and radical perspective to the current racial narrative in America.
