The New Commons Film Series presents I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO, an Oscar-nominated 2016 documentary highlighting James Baldwin’s observations on American history and racism. Narrated by Samuel L. Jackson, I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO is inspired by Baldwin’s unfinished 1970s work Remember This House. The documentary explores Baldwin’s thoughts on and relationships with key civil rights leaders of the 1960s such as Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Jr., and Medgar Evers.
