Movies: I Am Not Your Negro

A new teaser trailer has been released for the documentary film I Am Not Your Negro, directed by Raol Peck. 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 successive 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. Peck has envisioned the book Baldwin never finished as a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in the U.S., using Baldwin's original words and archival material. The film will be in theaters February 3.
