James Baldwin’s “I Am Not Your Negro” Holds Meaningful Words For A Divided Ameria
Oscar nominee “I Am Not Your Negro” is up for Best Documentary Feature and it seems like it’s the type of movie America might need at the moment.
Raoul Peck’s dynamic film is about James Baldwin’s unfinished manuscript that traces the civil-rights movement, as well as popular culture, and how concerning African-Americans are depicted in such.
A joint exclusive clip featuring the late Baldwin from The Huffington Post and parent company, AOL, shows him voicing out the importance of optimism.
Baldwin talks about optimism being a survival tool for the country’s rejection to solve many years of racial injustices.
“I Am Not Your Negro” is set to be playing in select theatres beginning Feb. 3.
