Screening of "I Am Not Your Negro"
An exclusive screening of the Academy Award-Nominated documentary. The event is sponsored by AETN/PBS. In 1979, author James Baldwin wrote a 30-page letter outlining a biography of slain civil rights leaders Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. Although Baldwin's proposed manuscript was never completed, master filmmaker Raoul Peck uses Baldwin's deeply personal notes to jump through time, juxtaposing Baldwin’s private words with his public statements, resulting in a radical, up-to-minute examination of race in America. Award-winning actor, Samuel L. Jackson narrates the film.
