A striking work of storytelling . . . One of the best movies about the civil rights era ever made . . . This might be the only movie about race relations that adequately explains with sympathy the root causes (Guardian)

Thrilling. . . . A portrait of one man's confrontation with a country that, murder by murder, as he once put it, devastated my universe (New York Times)

Baldwin's voice speaks even more powerfully today . . . the prose-poet of our injustice and inhumanity . . . The times have caught up with his scalding eloquence (Variety)

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

 

'Thrilling . . . A portrait of one man's confrontation with a country that, murder by murder, as he once put it, "devastated my universe"' The New York Times

 

In June 1979, the writer and civil rights activist James Baldwin embarked on a project to tell the story of America through the lives of three of his murdered friends: Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. He died before it could be completed. Now I Am Not Your Negro imagines the book Baldwin never wrote, using his original words to create a radical, powerful and poetic work on race in the United States - then, and today.

 

'Baldwin's voice speaks even more powerfully today . . . the prose-poet of our injustice and inhumanity . . . The times have caught up with his scalding eloquence' Variety

 

'A cinematic séance . . . One of the best movies about the civil rights era ever made' Guardian

 

'I Am Not Your Negro turns James Baldwin into a prophet' Rolling Stone
