Raoul Peck’s 2016 film I AM Not Your Negro envisions James Baldwin’s unfinished project “Remember This House,” a proposal to his literary agent that was to be a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and assassinations of three of his close friends: Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King, Jr. At the time of Baldwin’s death in 1987, he left behind only 30 completed pages of this manuscript.
James Baldwin: I Am Not Your Negro Film Documentary will be shown July 27, from 6 – 7:30 PM at the MIT List Visual Arts Center, 20 Ames St., Cambridge. All programs are free and open to the general public. RSVPs are required. RSVP here.
