Director Screening: I Am Not Your Negro

Located at the Billy Wilder Theater at the  Hammer Museum. 

Working from James Baldwin’s unfinished final novel, I Am Not Your Negro delves into the complex legacies of Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr. Framing the work as a radical narration about race in America, director Raoul Peck matches Baldwin’s lyrical rhetoric with footage of the Civil Rights and Black Power movements, revealing connections between past and present injustices. Narrated by Samuel L. Jackson. (2016, dir. Raoul Peck, 95 min.)

A Q&A with director Raoul Peck follows the screening.
