Directed by Haitian director Raoul Peck, "I Am Not Your Negro" takes the 30 completed pages of James Baldwin's final unfinished manuscript and uses them to create a film essay read by Samuel L. Jackson.

The writing was originally meant for a book about the lives and assassinations of Baldwin's friends Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr. Revealing Baldwin's astute and prescient connections between past and present injustices, the film shows that the author's insights are more necessary than ever.
