Essential viewing for all Americans.
A poignant film that juxtaposes Baldwin's speeches and words during the civil rights era with current events. Not so much a straightforward documentary, but more of one man's perspective of race relations in America. Not a great primer for films on the civil rights era, but a good companion to other more traditional films about the topic.
One of the running themes in this movie is James Baldwin’s perspective on the films of his youth and the Civil Rights era. I made a list of all the films referenced in this movie which can be found here: https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/movies+referenced+in+the+film+i+am+not+your+negro/beasterne/
