"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."--Washington Post
"As Peck cuts from archival scenes of police brutality in the South in the '60s to recent footage from Ferguson, Mo., it's impossible not to think: The more things change, the more they stay the same. It's enough to make you weep."--Entertainment Weekly
"I Am Not Your Negro travels a straight, well-researched path from the darkest tragedies of American history to the ones that plague the country today."--Village Voice
"If you watch 'I Am Not Your Negro,' you'll spend a kaleidoscopic and transporting 90 minutes living inside James Baldwin's mind, coming thrillingly close to his existential perception of the hidden meaning of race in America."--Variety
Master documentary filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished. The result is a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America, using Baldwin's original words and a flood of rich archival material. A journey into black history that connects the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present of #BlackLivesMatter.
