2

Author and activist James Baldwin’s unfinished manuscript comes to life in a new documentary, “I’m Not Your Negro.” Haitian filmmaker Raoul Peck used the 30 completed pages of Baldwin’s final, unfinished manuscript, Remember This House.  

In this work, Baldwin  remembers his three fallen friends Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King, Jr.

Peck’s film examines institutionalized practices and displaced white terror in America. The film is narrated by Samuel L. Jackson, and features the images and words of Baldwin.
