Documentary - JAMES BALWIN - I Am Not your Negro by Haitian-born filmmaker Raoul Peck


From that unfinished project, the Haitian-born filmmaker Raoul Peck has made a splendid documentary, "I Am Not Your Negro." The words we hear in voice-over, spoken in an artful, Baldwinian cadence by Samuel L. Jackson, belong entirely to the author of the book that never came to pass. Everything Baldwin said then, about race and America, speaks with urgent prescience to the America Baldwin (who died in 1987) never saw but saw coming, because he'd seen it before: Rodney King. Ferguson. Black Lives Matter. All of it. The necessity for all of it.
