Film Screening: I am Not Your Negro: James Baldwin and Race in America (2016)

Wed, March 6, 2019 4:30 P.M.
Lillian Marrero Library

This Oscar-nominated documentary narrated by Samuel L. Jackson explores the continued peril America faces from institutionalized racism. 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 succesive assassinations of three of his close friends-- Medgar Evans, 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. This documentary envisions the book James Baldwin never finished, connecting the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present of #BlackLivesMatter. (Rated PG-13)
