Movie review: I Am Not Your Negro

“It is humbling to realize that our nation’s conversation on race still faces incredible impediments, setbacks, and roadblocks. This film reminds us that Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X approached civil rights with different strategies, but came close to understanding one another at the time of their deaths. James Baldwin’s voice was measured, thoughtful, and honest. Although he would leave the Christian church in midlife (due to its complicity with racism and injustice), he nevertheless remained a compassionate humanitarian, a citizen of the world whose voice still has much to say to all of us.”
