Join the National Book Foundation for a screening of Raoul Peck's award-winning documentary on James Baldwin, "I Am Not Your Negro." Inspired by a manuscript left unfinished at the time of his death, the film uses Baldwin's collection of personal notes and letters to recount the lives of his friends and civil rights leaders Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Jr., and Medgar Evers, and explores the history of racism in the United States. This screening was made possible by the Ford Foundation and Velvet Film.
