In 1979, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, "Remember This House." The book was to be a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and assassinations of three of his close friends, each murdered as they struggled to change the way race was in the U.S.: Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. At the time of Baldwin's death in 1987, he left behind only 30 completed pages of this manuscript. In I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO, the terrific Haitian-American filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished, using only the words Baldwin himself wrote, voiced by Samuel L. Jackson. "The result is a brilliant piece of filmic writing, one that bursts with fierce urgency, not just for the long-unresolved history it seeks to confront, but also in its attempt to understand what is happening here, right now”—Ann Hornaday, Washington Post.
