"I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO" OSCAR NOMINATED DIRECTOR RAOUL PECK TALKS WITH TANISHA LAVERNE GRANT (1740 hits)

Entertainment Correspondent Tanisha LaVerne Grant talks with director Raoul Peck whose critically acclaimed documentary "I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO" has been Oscar nominated for "BEST DOCUMENTARY FEATURE"

In 1979, author James Baldwin wrote a 30-page letter outlining a biography of slain civil rights leaders Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. Although Baldwin's proposed manuscript was never completed, his letter and other writings serve as fuel for an examination of race relations in America.

Narrated by Samuel L. Jackson "I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO is an elegantly precise and bracing film essay on the still tragic state of race in America fro based on James Baldwin’s final, unfinished manuscript.
