Week 1 Featured Film: I Am Not Your Negro
Watch free on PBS until June 21, 2020 (or stream via your favorite service).
Description from PBS: The Oscar-nominated 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. The film draws upon Baldwin’s notes on the lives and assassinations of Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and MLK to explore and bring a fresh and radical perspective to examine race in America.
