I Am Not Your Negro

Rated PG-13 95 minutes 2017

Filmmaker Raoul Peck and author James Baldwin combine for an exceptionally smart, unerringly incisive cinematic essay on U.S. race relations – as well as on the deeper, darker eddies of the American soul. Based on the late Baldwin’s book Remember This House, the documentary takes off from the experiences of Medgar Evers, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and Malcom X to discover the meaning of racism in this country. And as Baldwin’s words note, “It’s not a pretty story.” Superb newsreel footage, sharp film editing by Alexandra Strauss, Alexei Aigui’s evocative musical score, and an eerily authoritative narration by actor Samuel L. Jackson only add to the power of Baldwin’s words. A must-see for anyone who wants to learn how America got the way it is today (93 min., 2016, rated PG-13) (K.V.)
