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. In his documentary film I Am Not Your
Negro, Raoul Peck 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.
