I Am Not Your Negro (12A)

I am Not Your Negro

From the archive

This film was last shown on 26 December 2017

Based on James Baldwin’s would-be revolutionary, unfinished manuscript ‘Remember This House’ – a personal account detailing the lives and assassinations of Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King. I am Not Your Negro reimagines those 30 pages on screen, with potent narration from Samuel L Jackson offering a window to the history of American race relations and a stark reminder of how much progress is yet to be made.

A powerful and intelligent film that uses James Baldwin’s perceptive commentary of American history to present insightful new ideas about America’s future.
