After great participation and discussion in July’s Watch Together, FI4BL is excited to announce this month’s film. During the month of August we will be watching I Am Not Your Negro.
From the film’s website:
“Master filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished, Remember This House. 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. It is a film that questions black representation in Hollywood and beyond. And, ultimately, by confronting the deeper connections between the lives and assassination of Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr., Baldwin and Peck have produced a work that challenges the very definition of what America stands for.”
Please check back for details about a scheduled, socially distant discussion near the end of the month!
This film is available to watch on Netflix, Kanopy, Hulu, and Amazon.
