I Am Not Your Negro Overview

In this documentary, director Raoul Peck takes a look at Remember This House, the book James Baldwin never finished. He crafts a radical narration about race in America, using Baldwin's original words. He draws upon the author’s notes about the lives and assassinations of Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr. to explore and bring a fresh perspective to the current racial fabric in America.

He analyzes the country's obsession with skin color and examines what it means to be Black in the U.S.A. by mixing rich archival footage of the Civil Rights and Black Power movements with recent recordings of young African-American men who’ve been killed, including Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice and Mike Brown.
