A course in American history, and a seminar in racial politics. (2016)

April: Afro-American month
During April we will screen films by and about African-Americans, ranging from art house to blaxploitation, all these films  have in common a subversive undertone and much coolness on the surface. 

I Am Not Your Negro (Raoul Peck, 2016)
To call “I Am Not Your Negro” a movie about the author James Baldwin would be to understate director Raoul Peck’s achievement. It’s more of a posthumous collaboration, an uncanny and thrilling communion between the filmmaker and his subject. The voice-over narration (read by Samuel L. Jackson) is entirely drawn from Baldwin’s work. Much of it comes from notes and letters written in the mid-1970s, when Baldwin was somewhat reluctantly sketching out a book, never to be completed, about the lives and deaths of Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr.
Baldwin’s published and unpublished words are some of the most powerful and penetrating ever assembled on the tortured subject of African-American identity.  “I Am Not Your Negro” is a thrilling introduction to his work, a remedial course in American history, and an advanced seminar in racial politics.
