“I am Not your Negro”: James Baldwin, Raoul Peck, and Race in America

February 16

As part of the university’s Black History Month celebrations, the History and Classics Club (in partnership with the Office of Human Rights, Diversity, and Equity) invites members of the MacEwan community to attend an online viewing and discussion of I Am Not Your Negro (2016), Raoul Peck’s award-winning documentary about the great American writer James Baldwin. Inspired by Baldwin’s unpublished reflections on the assassinations of three of his friends–the civil rights leaders Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr.–the film vividly recreates his formative experiences during the 1960s, interspersed with insightful commentary on the history and future of race relations and gay rights in the United States.
