  • 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, it draws upon Baldwin’s notes on the lives and assassinations of Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr. to explore and bring a fresh perspective to the current racial narrative in America.
  • The film connects the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present of #BlackLivesMatter. Baldwin and director Raoul Peck have produced a work that challenges the very definition of what America stands for.
  • TERRI JETT, Butler University Associate Professor of Political Science & Special Assistant to the Provost for Diversity and Inclusivity, will lead a discussion following the film.
