In his new film, director Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished - a radical narration about race in America, using the writer's original words. He draws upon James Baldwin's notes on the lives and assassinations of Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr. to explore and bring a fresh and radical perspective to the current racial narrative in America. Nominated for the Best Documentary Feature Academy Award. (Rated PG-13, runtime 93 minutes)
From the critics:
An incisive, biting cultural analysis, a psychological examination of a nation - including its culture and institutions - in denial of its own social constructs of race and racism, created to divide us.
-Katie Walsh Tribune News Service
It is an urgent, gut-wrenching film that doesn't sugarcoat the truth. America's race problem is all of our problem, it argues, and will not change until all of us step up and take responsibility for our role in it.
-Adam Graham Detroit News
