Watch Together (August)

Updated: Aug 19


Raoul Peck, director

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!
