I Am Not Your Negro (trailer)

Lots of buzz on this new James Baldwin documentary, I Am Not Your Negro being released in 2017. From Deadline Hollywood,

“The story of the Negro in America is the story of America. It is not a pretty story.” Samuel L. Jackson recites that line in the new trailer for I Am Not Your Negro, in which director Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished: a radical narration about race in America, using the writer’s original words.

Peck draws upon Baldwin’s notes on the lives and assassinations of Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr. to explore and bring a fresh perspective to the current racial narrative in America.”There are days,” Baldwin says in an on-camera interview, “when you wonder what your role is in this country and what your future is in it.”
