826 Boston, with Indie Lens Pop Up, will host a screening of I Am Not Your Negro, followed by an audience discussion on Thursday, January 11, at 6:00 PM, right before its PBS premiere on MLK Day. After the film, students from the 826 Boston Writers’ Room at the John D. O’Bryant School of Math and Science, who will be writing a book about re-imagining American history from minority perspectives, will lead an audience discussion.
One of the most acclaimed films of the year and an Oscar nominee for Best Documentary, I Am Not Your Negro envisions the book James Baldwin never finished. The result is a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America, using Baldwin’s original words, spoken by Samuel L. Jackson, and with a flood of rich archival material.
