With unprecedented access to James Baldwin’s original work, Raoul Peck completed a documentary film version of the novel Baldwin never finished—a radical narration about race in America that tracks the lives and assassinations of Baldwin’s friends Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X and Medgar Evers.
An incisive dive into the mind of James Baldwin, who speaks of the disturbing history of American race relations. Raoul Peck’s award-winning film blends archive footage, interviews and excerpts from Baldwin’s unfinished novel—read by Samuel L. Jackson—for a portrait that sadly still resonates today.
