‘I Am Not Your Negro’ Now At Cable Car

Head over to Moses Brown at 4pm, Saturday, April 1, for a free community screening of Raoul Peck’s 2016 film, “I Am Not Your Negro,” hosted by Cable Car Cinema at the new Woodman Family Center on the school campus. (Facebook event page.)

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 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. Filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished. (Magnolia pictures)

Running time 95 minutes. Narrated by Samuel L. Jackson. There will be a panel discussion after the screening. Seats will be available on a first come, first serve basis. Go here for NYT review.

(The film will also be screened today and through April 12th at the Cable Car Cinema on South Main Street.)

Free screening, 4pm, Saturday, April 1, Moses Brown School, 250 Lloyd Avenue, (directions)
