I Am Not Your Negro

...I Am Not Your Negro, directed by the Haiti-born filmmaker and activist Raoul Peck using Baldwin's own words, is alive and kicking ass.
-Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
Raoul Peck's transcendent documentary takes a kaleidoscopic journey through the life and mind of James Baldwin, whose voice speaks even more powerfully today than it did 50 years ago.
-Owen Gleiberman, Variety
To review “I Am Not Your Negro,” then, is to urge you to see an extraordinary document; it’s a great work of cinema, yes, but it also addresses the past and the present and the future of this country in a way that every citizen worthy of the name should experience, reflect and discuss.
-Alonso Duralde, The Wrap


Raoul Peck’s Oscar-nominated I Am Not Your Negro is a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America. Using James Baldwin’s original words and flood of rich archival material, this incendiary film is a sobering reminder of how far we've yet to go.
