James Baldwin was the renowned writer of gay classics like ''Giovanni's Room'' and ''Another Country'', and he was also one of the great black rights activists of his time. Cuban filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book that Baldwin never finished, ''Remember This House'' in this award-winning, lyrical and profound documentary, which features the writings of Baldwin, as read by Samuel L. Jackson. 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. ''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.
