“I Am Not Your Negro” is the 2016 documentary directed by Raoul Peck, based on James Baldwin’s unfinished manuscript Remember This House which 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.
