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. Haitian-born filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book Baldwin never finished in this challenging, profound Oscar® nominated documentary. As Baldwin's words and swathes of archive footage mesh seamlessly, I Am Not Your Negro draws a through-line from the pre-Civil Rights days to the #BlackLivesMatter of present day America.
