Winner of several awards including the Chicago International Film Festival Award for Best Documentary and the Black Film Critics Circle Award this radical and up-to-the-minute examination of race in America utilizes Baldwin's original words supported by a 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 these three leaders, Baldwin and Peck have produced a work that challenges the very definition of what America stands for.

"A film essay that's powerfully and painfully relevant today even though its subject died almost 30 years ago" - Kenneth Turan, LA Times
