...I Am Not Your Negro, directed by the Haiti-born filmmaker and activist Raoul Peck using Baldwin's own words, is alive and kicking ass.
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
Raoul Peck's transcendent documentary takes a kaleidoscopic journey through the life and mind of James Baldwin, whose voice speaks even more powerfully today than it did 50 years ago.

To review “I Am Not Your Negro,” then, is to urge you to see an extraordinary document; it’s a great work of cinema, yes, but it also addresses the past and the present and the future of this country in a way that every citizen worthy of the name should experience, reflect and discuss.
