I Am Not Your Negro

I Am Not Your Negro

Arts : State of the Art  for Wednesday 20 September 2017, 8:30am

Donald Betts Jr joins The Breakfast Spread to talk about his upcoming discussion with Michael Ondaatje following a screening of I Am Not Your Negro at ACMI.

Haitian filmmaker Raoul Peck (The Man by the Shore, Moloch Tropical, Murder in Pacot), returns with a transcendent documentary examining the life and work of literary iconoclast and queer icon James Baldwin.

The Oscar-nominated I Am Not Your Negro is based on Baldwin’s unfinished manuscript Remember This House, a stirring, personal account of the lives and deaths of his friends and US Civil Rights Movement leaders Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr.

Screening throughout September, ACMI will be facilitating a special discussion between Donald Betts Jr (former Kansas State Senator) and Michael Ondaatje (American history professor) about race politics and resistance from the civil rights era to present day America on Sunday September 24.

Tune into The Breakfast Spread from 8am Wednesday September 20 and head to the ACMI website for more details.
