Before his death in 1987, revolutionary author and critic James Baldwin was working on a book entitled Remember This House. Baldwin had outlined the book to his editor as a personal account of the lives and assassinations of his close friends Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King, Jr. Raoul Peck's upcoming film I Am Not Your Negro, which will be in theaters February 3, expands upon the 30-page manuscript that Baldwin left behind at the time of his death.
"In his incendiary new documentary, master filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished," a synopsis on the film's official website reads. "The result is a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America, using Baldwin’s original words and flood of rich archival material. I Am Not Your Negro is a journey into black history that connects the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present of #BlackLivesMatter."
