I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO
June 7th: 6:00PM, Hibernian Hall

A free screening of I Am Not Your Negro by Raoul Peck, a documentary about writer and activist James Baldwin.

Light food and drinks provided.

About the film: 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.

“Whatever you think about the past and future of what used to be called “race relations” this movie will make you think again, and may even change your mind.” – A.O. Scott, The NYTimes
