I Am Not Your Negro Film Screening

01/11/2018 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join us Thu, Jan. 11 at 2pm at The African American Museum of Southern Illinois (located inside the University Mall in Carbondale) for a free screening of the film ‘I Am Not Your Negro’ by Raoul Peck. Stick around after the film for a community discussion of the topics and issues presented in the film.

In 1979, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, to be called ‘Remember This House.’ The book was to be a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and successive assassinations of three of his close friends — Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. But at the time of Baldwin’s death in 1987, he left behind only 30 completed pages of his manuscript. Now, in his Oscar-nominated documentary I Am Not Your Negro, master filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished.
