Blu-ray Contest: I Am Not Your Negro

Currently out on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD from Magnolia Home Entertainment is director Raoul Peck’s I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO, the 2017 Academy Award Nominee for Best Documentary Feature.

Adapted from James Baldwin’s book, “Remember This House,” and narrated by academy award nominee Samuel L. Jackson, I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO revisits the assassinations of America’s most influential civil rights activists.
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 successive 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 thirty completed pages of his manuscript. Now, in his incendiary new documentary, master filmmaker Raoul Peck (Sometimes In April) envisions the book Baldwin never finished.

The result is a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America, using Baldwin’s original words and flood of rich archival material. I Am Not Your Negro is a journey into black history that connects the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present of #BlackLivesMatter. It is a film that questions black representation in Hollywood and beyond. And, ultimately, by confronting the deeper connections between the lives and assassination of these three leaders, Baldwin and Peck have produced a work that challenges the very definition of what America stands for.
