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., Peck has produced a work that challenges the very definition of what America stands for.

In his incendiary new documentary, master filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions a book James Baldwin left unfinished at his death, 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.
