“I Am Not Your Negro” examines the lives of three historic figures (Martin Luther King, Malcom X, and Medgar Evers) through the experiences of the author and historian, James Baldwin. Samuel L. Jackson narrates exerts from the book that Baldwin never completed entitled, Remember This House.
“I Am Not Your Negro” is in My Movie Pot because it utilizes raw footage of Baldwin’s lectures, recent riots, and Samuel L. Jackson’s narration to illustrate race relations in America. This empowering documentary compares and contrasts these leaders while expressing many of the challenges that Baldwin faced during the process.
