Screening and Discussion: I Am Not Your Negro

I Am Not Your Negro is a 2016 documentary based on James Baldwin’s unfinished manuscript Remember This House. Narrated by actor Samuel L. Jackson, the film is a journey into black history and connects Baldwin’s reminiscences of civil rights leaders Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr. to the present. The result is a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America.

This is a related event to the Humanities New York Readings and Discusion Series: James Baldwin's America. 

Presented by the Hofstra Department of English

In collaboration with the Hofstra Cultural Center


Date: Thursday, February 15, 2018
