Synopsis

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: 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. Filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished. Raoul Peck---2016---USA---93 mins

When I was young man studying French in Paris I browsed boquiniste stalls by the Seine. That's where I found a tattered copy of James Baldwin's "Notes of a native son". Baldwin's contention that Americans can't run away from being American hit me in the gut. He remains one of our most important social analysts. "I am not your Negro" is a bit jumbled and skips around a lot, but if you can't take the time to read Baldwin it's a good introduction to his thoughts on the American condition.
