The Oscar-nominated I Am Not Your Negro is based on Baldwin’s unfinished manuscript Remember This House, a stirring, personal account of the lives and deaths of his friends and US Civil Rights Movement leaders Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr.

Through these accounts, Baldwin’s considered yet razor-sharp activism bears witness to the impact and legacy of race in America, which forms the focus of Peck’s cinematic dissection of the enduring effects of social and racial inequality.

Narrated by Samuel L Jackson and over a decade in the making, I Am Not Your Negro seamlessly interweaves the historical and contemporary into an experience that blurs the past and present, demanding its audience consider how far we’ve come since the Protected content .
