I Am Not Your Negro NickNDA'S REVIEW

Great and thought provoking

BY NickNDA lister

I watched this on a plane in July and it was very powerful. Great use of archival footage to match the voiceover narrative by James Baldwin, who gives an insight into what life was like as African Americans fought for equal human rights. Filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished, beyond the 30 pages he drafted. The film is all the more powerful now that Trump has taken office and America is seeing a return to old values, and the Black Lives Matter is rising up to say 'No don't shoot us again, don't treat us like it's the 60s'
