I Am Not Your Negro is a fitting tribute and introduction to James Baldwin - stylish, to-the-point, and full of truths as timely now as they were when Baldwin first put them into writing. It is not to be missed.
What is scary is how seamlessly the film transitions between the racially charged tragedies of today and the tragedies of the civil rights movement. It paints a picture that race relations have not changed in since the 1960s.
Assembling interview footage of James Baldwin and readings from his works, the documentary I Am Not Your Negro is a potent study of the writer, the 1960s civil-rights movement and the continuing struggles of African-Americans.
