Thu 27 April 2017, 19:00 – 22:00 BST
Legacy Film invite you to this SPECIAL ONE-OFF INTIMATE SCREENING of 'I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO', by Raoul Peck.
In 1979, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, "Remember This House." The book 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. Filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished.
"However much a documentary about American life in the 1960s, I Am Not Your Negro also uses Baldwin’s insights to illuminate our own contemporary reality" - The Atlantic
" A springboard to explore how racism, identity, history and collective denial and shame have conspired to forge a dramatically bifurcated American culture" - Washington Post
"Whatever you think about the past and future of what used to be called “race relations” this movie will make you think again, and may even change your mind" - New York Times
