It's outrageous how relevant writer and journalist James Baldwin's words dating back to the '50s, '60s and '70s are today. He's part of the conversation again thanks to one of the best documentaries of the year.
Selected by: Job de Wit, Film and music ambassador

James Baldwin was writing a book about his three murdered friends: Malcolm X, Medgar Ewers and Martin Luther King jr. It was destined to be a revolutionary and personal book, but when Baldwin died in 1987, he had only written 30 pages. Director Raoul Peck decided to tell the story using film. I Am Not Your Negro is a journey through black history, which provides the contextual ties between the civil rights movement and #BlackLivesMatter. The film questions the way American society treats Afro-Americans.
