I Am Not Your Negro Reviews
Angry polemic manuscript, which Peck builds a searing documentary around. It's powerful stuff. There's probably an expectation that you know the MLK, X and Evers' stories; but it's an excellent take on the US and race.
James Baldwin was an intelligent, insightful and articulate man who described the world of race in America with depth and perception. This movie certainly did an admirable job of presenting his views and it should make everyone who watches it think. However, like so many presentations it is one sided and does little to explain the reasons for all the ills in the black community, short of blaming white America only. It would be interesting to see a more balanced view of the problems we face with race.
