Saturday Afternoon at the Movies – I Am Not Your Negro (2017)

Saturday, September 12 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

Members & guests–free with Amazon Prime and Hulu subscriptions. To RSVP, please scroll down. Registered attendees will then receive an email the day before the discussion with a link to join via Zoom.

Watch the film any time before the discussion–or enjoy the discussion and be persuaded to view it after! In 1979, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, “Remember This House.” The book was to be a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and assassinations of three of his close friends: Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. At the time of Baldwin’s death in 1987, he left behind only 30 completed pages of this manuscript. Filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished. Join a group discussion led by Village member Mel Washburn via Zoom at 3:00 PM.
