About the Movie
Master filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished, Remember This House. The result is a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America, using Baldwin’s original words and flood of rich archival material. I Am Not Your Negro is a journey into black history that connects the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present of #BlackLivesMatter. It is a film that questions black representation in Hollywood and beyond. And, ultimately, by confronting the deeper connections between the lives and assassination of Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr., Baldwin and Peck have produced a work that challenges the very definition of what America stands for.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A compelling document that works as a mini-history of black racial identity in America from the mid- to late-20th century and beyond.
Fresh: An enormously resonant work of cultural history that should do much to renew attention to the lonely, prophetic voice of James Baldwin.
Fresh: Baldwin's words, Jackson's reading and Peck's elegant and scorching composition will resonate for years to come.
Fresh: Its thesis is tired and worn. But this is not the fault of the film, just of a country that refuses to truly bear witness.
He spoke the truth every time he opened up his mouth. We need this movie, this movement, this truth to be heard on the deaf ears of our children today. Both black, white, and other.
Baldwin candid and thoughtful...
Great look into his perspective of American history and not just Black history.
