I am Not Your Negro uses James Baldwin’s notes to hold a conversation between Medgar Evans, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and Malcolm X, a conversation between the future and the past, a conversation between those who are citizens and those who are wards of this state. Through James Baldwin, this film holds space for black folks and demands that white folks recognize their responsibility in perpetuating racism. The film artfully splices images of the present, the militant response to protests in Ferguson, with images of the past, state sanctioned white attacks on black protesters.

Make sure to clear your schedule after watching this film to reflect on and confront your emotional response!


We are commemorating Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King a little late with two great films!

Loving (Friday 1/27)
