I Am Not Your Negro

 


Wednesday 18th November  | 5:30-7:00pm | Microsoft Teams 

In our third session, we will discuss Raoul Peck’s brilliant documentary I Am Not Your Negro (2016). The film is an adaptation of an unfinished James Baldwin manuscript, Remember This House. The documentary includes a number of Baldwin’s letters and notes from the 1970s. It is structured around the lives of three men: Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Jr., and Medgar Evers. All three were Civil Rights leaders who were assassinated. They were also close friends with Baldwin. 

The film is currently available to watch, for free, on BBC iPlayer.   

The meeting will be hosted on Microsoft Teams and is open to anyone with an email address affiliated with Office 365. To join us on Wednesday 18th November for the meeting, please email Joseph on en17jog@leeds.ac.uk
