Watch the trailer for the James Baldwin documentary ‘I Am Not Your Negro’

Trailer: James Baldwin – I Am Not Your Negro (Documentary)

With our nation dealing a stronger racial divide than we’ve seen in recent times, the time comes for education and knowledge. This documentary tells the story of race relations in America and based on the unfinished work of James Baldwin, narrated by Samuel L. Jackson.

In his new film, director Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished – a radical narration about race in America, using the writer’s original words. He draws upon James Baldwin’s notes on the lives and assassinations of Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr. to explore and bring a fresh and radical perspective to the current racial narrative in America.

Check out the trailer for I Am Not Your Negro based on James Baldwin’s work and catch the film in theaters February.
