This documentary about the novelist, playwright and essayist James Baldwin speaks to the present moment with enormous clarity and force, insisting on uncomfortable truths and drawing lessons from within history’s shadows in its discussion of what was once called “race relations.” Much of the narration is drawn from notes and letters reflecting on the lives and deaths of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr. that Baldwin wrote in the mid-1970s, resulting in an advanced seminar in racial politics. 2017, USA, 93 minutes, rated PG-13

After the film, take part in a discussion with Rev. Owen Thompson, rector at Grace Church in Nyack, and Weldon McWilliams IV, associate minister at First Baptist Church in Spring Valley.

“What makes I Am Not Your Negro a mesmerizing cinematic experience, smart, thoughtful and disturbing, goes well beyond words.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

“This movie will make you think again, and may even change your mind.” – A. O. Scott, The New York Times
