Covert: Documentary & Discussion, I am not your Negro
October 11, 2017 @ 5:00 pm
Watch a critically acclaimed documentary, “I am not your Negro” and discuss your thoughts about it afterwards with other members of the library community!
“I am not your negro” is the 1979 account of James Baldwin, who wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, a book titled “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. Snacks will be provided!
