Reel Talk: I Am Not Your Negro

ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE

I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO
93 minutes, 2016

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 Martin Luther King Jr. to explore and bring a fresh perspective to our current racial narrative. Raoul Peck’s Oscar-nominated documentary is a journey into black history that connects the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present of #BlackLivesMatter. Join us for film screenings followed by a provocative discussion about the themes led by director, playwright and dramaturge, Talvin Wilks. REEL Talks are free, but reservations are required.
