Film Screening—I Am Not Your Negro by Raoul Peck
One of the most acclaimed films of 2016 and an Oscar nominee for Best Documentary, I Am Not Your Negro 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, spoken by Samuel L. Jackson, with a flood of rich archival material. Q&A to follow screening.
Presented in partnership with PBS SoCal.
