I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO Teaser Trailer

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 this manuscript.

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 this 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 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.

“One of the best movies you are likely to see this year. 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.”
– Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

“A TRANSCENDENT DOCUMENTARY”
– Owen Gleiberman, Variety

“A cinematic séance, and one of the best movies about the civil rights era ever made.”
– Jordan Hoffman, The Guardian

“A fascinating and gorgeous and very powerful film.”
– Bob Mondello, NPR

“An act of provocation, and of prophecy.”
“IT SHOULD BE REQUIRED VIEWING FOR ALL AMERICANS”
– Piers Marchant, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
